Einstein’s ultimate theory

Albert Einstein would like to know God’s thoughts. However, as he lay dying in Princeton Hospital then and there he knew that there are secrets that God cannot share.

Einstein started with the Theory of Everything, which can replace quantum mechanics, an undertaking to extend general relativity and unite forces in the universe.

He hoped that he would have rid physics of the unpredictability in quantum mechanics and show everyone that everything in the world is predictable, which can be explained by mathematics. He would show the world that quantum mechanics is wrong, a three decade project that he continued, until his last breath.

Experts claimed that the Master theory may be considered a flop. However, it is an idea that sparks interest to the great men of physics. As of the moment, many believe that String Theory is the nearest to what we have in the theory of everything.

Nikola Tesla: getting to know the man who is behind it all

Image

Nikola Tesla, a Serbian- American inventor worked for Thomas Edison in the beginning of his career. He fixed motors and DC generators. However, when he asked Edison for a compensation for all his contribution, Edison laughed and said,” Tesla, you don’t understand our American humor.”

Tesla went to work on his alternating current electrical system and disappointed Edison, who was promoting on his direct electrical system. Comparing both, the former had system  only require thinner wires and could transmit electricity in far places. The latter need a power plant in every square mile and could only transport electricity in nearby places.

Families near Edison’s laboratory noticed that their pets were missing. This was because Edison paid schoolboys 25 cents a head for live dogs and cats. He then electrocuted these animals using Tesla’s alternating current, so that it can make it seem to people that the latter’s invention is not suitable for home use.

Marconi, the Nobel Prize winner for his invention of the radio simply based his work on Tesla’s inventions.  As stated by Tesla, he said “Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using seventeen of my patents.”

On the lighter side of things, let’s talk about Tesla’s love life. Well, this guy focused his time and energy on innovations for the greater good. He somewhat found love in a hopeless place.  As quoted below:

“I have been feeding pigeons, thousands of them for years.  But there was one pigeon, a beautiful bird, pure white with light gray tips on its wings; that one was different.  It was a female. I would know that pigeon anywhere. No matter, where I was that pigeon would find me, when I wanted here I had only to wish and call her she would come flying to me. She understood me and I understood her.

I loved that pigeon.

Yes, I loved her as a man loves a woman, and she loves me. “

Above all, this guy is an absolute genius. No fuss, just pure science.

Awaken Inside A Dream

Have you ever seen a monster? Been chased by someone you fear? Or meet someone from a far place? Probably, every question above-mentioned is possible in your dreams. Dreams are these unlimited and involuntary shuttering of imageries while sleeping or unconscious. It is a human experience that whets everyone’s interest. Amazingly, this human experience is not just exclusive to us. It extends to certain types of birds and most of the mammals, here the animal kingdoms hares some commonality.

Dream takes a toll on the man’s interest. In fact, there is a study centered on dreams–oneirology. The interpretation of dreams even took created a great faction between world’s most prominent psychologists namely Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung.

There recognizable characteristics of dreams that carry a lot of us. Dreams are more like a pantomime or silent movies. It composes more of images than scent, taste or sound. You are more likely to see yourself flying or falling than hear your roommates talking.

A dream is, therefore, among other things a projection: an externalization of an internal process.” — Sigmund Freud.

They also show imprints of our personality. Deep in our mind live our hidden thoughts, desires or emotions. Aside from slipping these thoughts in your tongue, we dream of these as if the thoughts remind us that they exist. And that they need to be expressed.

Basic conflict: Desire to establish an autonomous and independent life either through a career or marriage, preferably the latter, vs. fear of leaving the security provided by the family.
Spotlight dream A1: I dreamed that I volunteered to go overseas as a teacher. I went to Italy to teach the children there. My dream consisted of leaving my family and being very graciously welcomed in Italy by an Army officer and his wife. I was married shortly after my arrival there. Most of my dream was the difficulty I had leaving home.

Interpretation: The basic conflict is clearly projected into this dream. She does leave home, even the country, yet despite the presence of parental substitutes in Italy and a speedy marriage, much of the dream is concerned with the difficulty she has in leaving her home. That the dreamer is aware of the conflict is indicated by the explanatory comment appended to the dream. “I guess this dream has to do with my fear of leaving home. I have never been away for more than a week and my folks keep insisting it would be wise for me to leave for a while.”

On 1947, Calvin S. Hall had this interpretation of a personality through dream assessment. The dream clearly showed the defiance of the girl to parental submission.

Sometimes people’s dreams seem to be opaque in nature, uneasily understood. The reason why these dreams become hard to interpret is that they come in symbols. Such symbols may have interpretations relatively varying. Dream moods, a website which serves a dictionary provides this:

Lamp

To see a lamp in your dream symbolizes guidance, hope, inspiration, enlightenment and reassurance. If the lamp is dimly lit or unlit, then it suggests that you are feeling overwhelmed by emotional issues. You have lost your ability to find your own way or see things clearly.

To see a broken lamp in your dream suggests that you are shutting out those who are trying to help you. It is also symbolic of disappointments, misfortune and bad luck.

Sausage

To see or eat sausage in your dream symbolizes material values. It may also represent the phallus and thus refers to sexual feelings or tension.

Dreams also concertize our memories. As you notice, dreams seem to be continuing. They tend to be like television series as it appears as a similar continued dream from the past. Actually, these dreams resembles reality our past experiences. They recur in such a manner that they are derived from one origin- our memory. McNamara’s studies show high similarities upon comparing a diary to one’s dreams. If a man visits a blue room, he will most likely dream of a blue room. In this way dreams become aids to our recall of thoughts.

Our surreal thoughts carry a lot of meanings and reflections to our self especially our personality. Dreams cannot be compounded in a single book, they are man’s unfathomable experiences that we continue to unravel.
