Gravitational Lens G2237+0305
Four images of a very distant quasar which has been multiple-imaged by a relatively nearby galaxy. This is due to gravitational lensing, an effect predicted by Einstein's theory of general relativity. Light from a very distant source can be bent, or “lensed,” around an intervening object of great mass, like a galaxy. Source: Einstein's 100th Anniversary Free Lessons (Online in 2006).

Einstein playing the violin, something he loved to do. Einstein's mother introduced him to the violin at the age of 6 in an attempt to counteract his academic failures. Einstein eventually became an accomplished amateur violinist, taking particular pleasure in performing Mozart and discussing the parallels between music and mathematics. His son, Hans Albert, recalled that “whenever he felt that he had come to the end of the road or into a difficult situation in his work, he would take refuge in music, and that would usually resolve all the difficulties.”

Einstein said what goes up, comes down. Everything we send out, comes back to us.
An artist concept of twisted space-time around Earth. From Space Time Vortex, NASA. “Gravity,” says Einstein, “is simply the motion of objects following the curvaceous lines of the dimple.”

It is my hope that some scientist out there will begin to understand what Einstein meant when he referred to the dimple. It is my experience that the moment you leave the atmosphere of the earth and enter real space, there is the dark bent side of a black hole that becomes visible. It's impossible to describe. It is something one must experience.

One of the most fascinating things about Einstein is that his theories keep being proven while many famous scientists continue to try to discredit them. I believe that because of his spiritual power (which none of the other scientists discuss), they will always prove to be correct. And even when someone thinks they can discredit Einstein, it will probably turn out that what they discovered was already known to him. He had much more to teach us. People haven't even begun to understand the importance of his words regarding gravity, which is what keeps our feet on this earth!

At Science@Nasa, there is a wonderful article about Space-Time Vortex - “Is Earth in a vortex of space-time?” One of the latest experiments—not completed for another year—is from NASA's Gravity Probe B. The image (above top) tells it all. He taught so much more than science, but that is not as widely known. As the site explains: “Time and space, according to Einstein's theories of relativity, are woven together, forming a 4-dimensional fabric called 'space-time.' The tremendous mass of Earth dimples this fabric, much like a heavy person sitting in the middle of a trampoline.”

This brings us back to the beetle quote. “When the blind beetle crawls over the surface of the globe, he doesn't realize that the track he has covered is curved. I was lucky enough to have spotted it.” I repeat this quote because it explains so much if you just stop and think about it. The rendering above of the earth also helps the mind to visualize the 'pull' of force from the vortex journey we are on.

I've used quotes from others only to remind you of Einstein's true genius when you read all of this. If you are a hard-core realist who doesn't believe in anything out of the norm, you might be surprised by some of Einstein's thoughts. But because of who he was, and remains to this day, you cannot call it rubbish.

Einstein didn't open his mouth to utter concepts until he was nearly 4 or 5 years old. This is because of how he thought in images, not words. “He once suggested to Benjamin Lee Whorf, who studied and wrote about these language differences, that it might be easier to describe the discoveries of modern physics in the Hopi language than in English. In Hopi we would not face the contradictions of a world made at once of particle-things and wave-actions, of matter-things and energy-actions, never having separated things from actions in the first place.” Source: Elisabet Sahtouris, Ph.D.

When Einstein was asked how he would approach the problem of avoiding the end of the world if he had 1 hour to solve it, he said he'd spend 55 minutes identifying the problem and the last 5 minutes solving it, “for the formulation of a problem is often far more essential than its solution.” This reminds me of the other famous quote of his: “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

And perhaps another one of my favorite quotes, which certainly seems to apply to today's world: “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage—to move in the opposite direction.” So, let's all be courageous, even if we can't call ourselves a genius!
