Section 1: Against Stupidity: Chapter: 1-10
• In Chapter 1, Dr. Frederick Hallam was a radiochemist who had a mediocre future until he happened to ﬁnd a jar of tungsten on his desk had changed.
• Hallam demanded to know who had been changing things on his desk and Dr. Benjamin Denison, a college of Dr. Hallam's, made fun of Hallam's ignorance.
• This pushed Hallam to do tests on the new substance that had been left in place of the tungsten.
• The substance comes back as being Plutonium 186, but that is impossible since that substance cannot exist in our Universe.
• There are several more tests run, and it is determined that each measurement of the energy from the positrons is a little higher each time tested.
• Chapter 2 explains that when Dr. Lamont was younger, he was trying to write a paper on Hallam and the discovery of the Electron Pump.
