Genius Deconstructed

So this article talks about Einstein, who we all know was a physicist.  But what I took away from this wasn’t what he worked on, but how.

Einstein was constantly thinking about what he loved- physics.  As the article says, he was a third-class examiner in the Swiss patent office when he thought up what it would be like to travel alongside a beam of light.  Einstein shows that you can always be thinking and can come up with new ideas anywhere.

He even worked and thought all the way to his deathbed.

This connects to my research because physics isn’t a topic that can only be discussed with paper and pencil or computer (though they do help).  Physics is ideas, thoughts, and new ways of looking at things.

So I’m starting to understand a little bit more about spacetime.  Basically it’s the idea that Einstein came up with based on his assumption that the speed of light is always constant and nothing can go faster. (this assumption actually makes me uncomfortable, but more on that later)  So Einstein said that in order to keep the speed of light constant, space and time must bend and change as one.

The thing is, no one really knows what spacetime is.

I’m hoping to look at more quantum theory and possibly string theory and try to link them, though it might be a dead end.

It would take multiple posts to explain this and I don’t think I’m grasping the whole concept, so I’m going to skip the explanation (for now.)
