Neils Bohr Institute Lecture - Our Cosmic Roots

"The structure of such a space differs absolutely radically in one respect from that of a Euclidean space ... On physical grounds, this gave rise to the conviction that the metrical field was at the same time the gravitational field.", from "The Problem of Space, Ether, and the Field in Physics" ( "Das Raum-, Äether- und Feld-Problem der Physik." ), by Albert Einstein, 1934
