Apart from the avoidance of absolutely needless verbosity, this is such as to also encompass the scientific spirit of Albert Einstein, who tirelessly and independently pursued a pure kind of geometrization of physics as demanded by the real geometric quintessence of General Relativity, and that of Abraham Zelmanov, who formulated his theory of chronometric invariants and a most all-encompassing classification of inhomogeneous, anisotropic general relativistic cosmological models and who revealed a fundamental preliminary version of the kinemetric monad formalism of General Relativity for the unification of the observer and observables in the cosmos.
