  1. Whitney, I have a new and correct theory of how the universe actually operates and I have the formula that Einstein could not find. I would like to pitch a 1 hour show explaining the nature of nature to the world. I am making the claim that I know 100% of the actions in the universe. I even have a patent working through the patent office on a quantum entanglement communication and operating system. I have corrected Physists to show the average person, the operating system of the universe!
