Einstein and Huxley
The last century saw the birth of some of the greatest geniuses the world ever saw.
Aldous Huxley really hit spot on, when he wrote: ”Brave new World”.
Once upon a time he said these words of wisdom:
– At their first appearance enervators are always derided as fools and madmen.
Any child still knows the name Albert Einstein – the discoverer of the theory of relativity.
As all new thinkers he was also ridiculed and criticized by the ”scholars”.
At a world congress for mathematicians in Berlin, Einstein’s theory of relativity was called the most devilish, terrible, horrible, fraudulent hoax ever presented to the mathematicians of the world.
Einstein was not only a genius of a scientist. He was also a philosopher. Enjoy his spot on analysis:
– 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.
