Continuum… Why Every Child Should Read, Learn, and Know about Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was very satisfied with his job at the Swiss patent office. There he had time to study, read, and think about his time/space theory and how electromagnetism, gravity, and space-time were related. One of his great abilities was being able to search past and present subjects related to the physic questions in his mind. The search for past and present subjects gave him insight into his time-space, gravity, electromagnetism, and other thoughts and ideas.

He was especially interested in ideas by Max Plank, Isaac Newton, Niels Bohr, James Maxwell, Michelson-Morley, Galileo, and many others. Albert was an avid reader and the past physics information was a valuable asset for Einstein.

1905 is known as Einstein’s “Miracle Year.” He came out with not one, but three major discoveries in physics. His first paper “Brownian Motion,” involved the erratic random motion or high-frequency motion of particles in a fluid. I have written before about these random high-frequency particles in the blood, looking through the dark field microscope.

Albert’s second discovery concerned high-frequency radiation. He stated that high-frequency radiation must consist of tiny mutually independent bits of quanta that occurs in the electromagnetic energy of atoms. The effect of the radiation was proportionate to the frequency of radiation.
But Einstein’s third paper was the most famous achievement and his third great revolutionary theory of 1905. It was the theory of “Special Relativity.” The equation of it is E=Mc 2 where he described how energy (matter) can be equal to mass times velocity squared.

A very important part of the theory of special relativity was a new method of explaining that space and time become intertwined with one another in a 4th-dimensional “space-time.” This can be explained as energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. It means that mass can be converted into energy or “visa-versa.” This means that the nucleus of atoms can be changed by fusion (nuclear fusion). This is the secrete of the nuclear bomb. The process includes both electrical and magnetic principles. Einstein showed that mass and energy are two different fundamentals of nature. The faster an object moves, the more the object’s mass increases. This is known as the “space-time event.”

It was ten years later, that Einstein came out with another great discovery. In 1915, he wrote a paper on “the theory of General Relativity.” In that theory, Albert showed that gravity affects the fabric of time and space. It was an extension of his theory of special relativity.

General relativity explains that the force of gravity warps (bends) space-time (including light). It bends the medium (light), as it passes by a large celestial body. To prove the theory it involved a total eclipse of the moon. He said that in a total eclipse, the sun warps (bends) around the moon, and a person can see the stars behind the moon.
Before Einstein could receive the Nobel prize in Physics, he had to prove that light distorts with a total eclipse of the moon. In January of 1916, Dr. Eddington, his loyal friend, set up an apparatus in Goldendale, Wahington, where a total eclipse was coming. In the meantime, Albert and Minerva obtained a divorce and Einstein promised Minerva that his Nobel prize money would go to her and Leiseri, his daughter. He thought that the Nobel prize would come in 1917 or 1918. Unfortunately, the sun at Goldendale was completely blocked by a heavy cloud cover. He would have to wait until 1917 to test his theory.

More bad luck followed for the next three years when Dr. Eddington set up his equipment to test the theory. The sun was completely covered by clouds in Venezuela, Europe, and Spain. Finally, in 1920, a total eclipse in Australia came with a beautiful blue sky. Dr. Eddington proved Einstein’s theory of General relativity. Albert’s Nobel prize was finally awarded in 1922. Later that year, Minerva got the money that Einstein had promised.

Einstein’s theory of “General Relativity” was the jump-off place for other scientists and cosmetologists to expand Einstein’s great discoveries. A short time later, Edwin Hubble proved Einstein was right about his expanding universe and brought out other questions about “dark energy,” black holes, and gravity’s pull from dark holes in the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies that held the celestial bodies together.

More surprising discoveries occurred when scientists studied Einstein’s theories. Some of these were “Gravity waves,” gravitational lensing, or gravity’s ability to bend light waves. Even the discovery in 1965 of the big bang theory that the universe started from a single source evolved from Einstein’s equations. A great discovery by Niels Bohr in 1913 came from Einstein’s theories in that atomic electrons circle around a tiny nucleus in higher and lower energetic orbits. This discovery of atomic structure resulted in finding anions (antioxidants) and cations, (oxidants), plus many other things about atoms and electrons.

A new philosophy of science became clear that only meaningful concepts and theories need to be crystal clear and proven. Einstein spent a lot of time showing that philosophy gives scientists the independence of judgment needed to make revolutionary discoveries.

In just a short time, nine years between 1905 and 1914, Einstein became one of the most prominent physicists in the world. After 1909, he received numerous opportunities and offers. Albert’s travels took him to many countries. He stayed in Germany for 20 years. In 1932, Albert moved from Prague, Germany, to the University of Zurich, then back to Berlin. But with the clouds of war on the horizon, he knew he would have to move. In 1933 he moved to the United States picking Princeton University.

In 1919, Einstein divorced Minerva and not long afterward married Elsa Lowenthal. Elsa was his 2nd cousin and a physicist. He was very happy with Elsa and she understood what life would be like being married to a famous physicist.

Albert was very busy He was active in many areas including philosophy, ethics, religion, civil rights, and the control of Atomic energy. In the year 2000, Time magazine named him “The person of the Century.”

He was very worried that some nations would use nuclear weapons and that they would be very destructive weapons in the hands of a dictator. He felt that a non-thinking dictator who would use them to destroy humans in a war would be making a catastrophic mistake. On the other hand, he felt the use of atomic energy and the use for the generation of electric power might be a great thing for people.

In most of his later years, he taught and lectured in Universities and worked with the United States in the production of nuclear bombs. He also did what he liked best, working on the unified space theory, tying electromagnetism, space-time, gravity, and mass particles together. It even relates to the particle physics of atoms, such as quarks, and gluons. He called it “The unified space theory of Everything.” He gave many lectures on the unified space theory, ethics, racism, atomic energy, and many social and political issues.

He had a lifetime love for music, the violin, and sailing. In his last years that made it nice for him to enjoy the violin, music, and skimming along in his sailboat. He worked on his great discoveries until he died in 1955.

In the future, a great opportunity exists for a child who studies Einstein’s theories. The connection between Einstein’s compass and the unified space theory brings about some potentially great opportunities. It will not be long before some great scholar connects the unified space theory with the minerals and nutrients in the soil, electromagnetism in plants, trees, bushes, and vines, plus vibrations and electromagnetism in body cells. Parents and teachers should make sure that children are taught discipline, dedication, motivation, reading, math, research, and goals, plus eating a diet that keeps great acuity in the brain. Teaching math and science develop questions in children’s minds. Those help them to develop into curious, active, smart individuals. The world can always use another Albert Einstein.
