Looking For Einstein

(I did not speak a word until I was 3...but my mom says that once I started talking they could not shut me up...LOL )

I'm often referred to as a "loner"...but I get along with people...

I don't believe I share the "genius" aspect but I do thoroughly enjoy deep thought processes.

There are more similarities...but I wouldn't phantom going into those details here...That's for those who care to really get to know me.

Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879 ‒ April 18, 1955) was a Jewish German-born theoretical physicist of profound genius, who is widely regarded as the greatest scientist of the 20th century. He proposed the theory of relativity and also made major contributions to the development of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and cosmology. He was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect in 1905 (his "miracle year" ) and "for his services to Theoretical Physics".

After his general theory of relativity was formulated in November 1915, Einstein became world famous, an unusual achievement for a scientist. In his later years, his fame exceeded that of any other scientist in history. In popular culture, his name has become synonymous with great intelligence and even genius.

Einstein himself was deeply concerned with the social impact of scientific discoveries. His reverence for all creation, his belief in the grandeur, beauty, and sublimity of the universe (the primary source of inspiration in science), his awe for the scheme that is manifested in the material universe–all of these show through in his work and philosophy.

During his childhood Einstein was a loner and repeated sentences obsessively up to the age of seven. As an adult his lectures were confusing. His career was devoted to complex mathematics. In the article "Autism, Genius, and Greatness" on the Autistic Advocacy website, Frank Klein claims “(Einstein’s) autistic traits, and his near-certain place on the autistic spectrum, are well-known in the autistic community” [8]. Klein believes Einstein was typical of capable autistic people as he was logical and analytical though socially awkward and needed daily solitude, and that, being extremely perseverative, he could give more time to a problem of interest than any normal person could have. Klein suggests that autistic people "have an affinity for objects (tangible or otherwise) rather than people," and that the object of Einstein’s attention was physics. People claim that that Albert Einstein was a late speaker, was a loner as a child, and needed his wives to act as parents when he was an adult; factors people claim make him "obviously" (or at least stereotypically) autistic.

I'm in the middle of a realy good book about Einstein and his relationship with Niels Bohr.

There truly was more to Einstein than science. It's a shame that more of that side of him isn't shown.

Let me drive. I like the view

Can I borrow the book when you are done? I would love to read about this different aspect of his life.
