MAY THE QUARK BE WITH YOU - ALBERT EINSTEIN, AN ICONIC LEGEND IS BORN

Albert Einstein was born today in 1879. The Big Kahuna of modern physics and creator of the Relativity Theory, Einstein received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for Theoretical Physics, and his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.

I always admired Einstein - I think it was his wild hair! Okay, he was pretty smart too, but, holy cow, that hair just screamed "non-conformist" to me. I like non-conformists, I'm one myself though I think my IQ might be a little lower than Einstein's!

I like to do artistic tributes to my heros and icons that have inspired me in someway and "Everything is Relative" is my dedication to Albert Einstein. He had such an influence on the twentieth century and was a powerful influence on society and politics that he deserves iconic status in my book.

I never got the whole "universal law" positive thinking thing until I applied my extremely limited understanding of quantum physics to it. Once I related everything being made up of gazillions of constantly moving particles to thought processes I finally realized that we can and do think our world into being. I wonder what Einstein would have thought of "The Secret"?

  1. I'm guessing that Einstein would have thought the theory behind "The Secret" was valid and not just another HAIR-brained scheme--

    Great post!

    I could spend days just looking through all of your blogs and art.

    You rock, Terri!

  3. Eileen, yes I think Einstein would have understood the current take on "universal law" - I kinda think he was working the concept, don't you?

    Pam, thank you for the compliments - you made me blush - but only my dog was here to see it, lol!

    I think Einstein would be proud to know the world has finally caught up to his thinking.
