"The Neural Network of Albert Einstein as he realizes E=MC²"
In physics, mass–energy equivalence states that anything having mass has an equivalent amount of energy and vice versa, with these fundamental quantities directly relating to one another by Albert Einstein's famous formula:
This formula states that the equivalent energy (E) can be calculated as the mass (m) multiplied by the speed of light (c= about 3×108 m/s) squared. (Similarly, anything having energy exhibits a corresponding mass m given by its energy E divided by the speed of light squared c².)
When I made this three dimensional fractal I immediately thought that its complexity and depth reminded me of Einstein. Not just because of his incredible brain, but also because of his iconic photo, where this fractal also mimics the genius's hair. While brain imaging has come a long way since Einstein had this epiphany at age 26, but science has yet to be able to decipher the neural networks fractal architecture as a thought is formed.
Einstein was 26 when he published a paper describing His theory E=MC². In this theory he did not only describe the inherent energy in matter, but the potential of the human spirit.
Einstein was not well schooled, in fact, was not even a good student. But through his curiosity and persistence, discovered secrets of nature and physics no one else had, and still is considered the pre-eminent genius of our time.
This same potential exists in every person, and for most it is squandered. This potential is especially important in certain roles in society. The artist is one who has the capability to depict the world, life, emotion, science, spirit and more in a light which allows their fellow beings to look into the insights laid bare, and prosper from it.
Utilizing Einstein’s formulae, and knowing I weigh approximately 190lbs, I can calculate that I have the energy approximately equivalent to 1,856,459 kilotons of TNT. Knowing the bomb that destroyed Nagasaki had the energy of approximately 21 kilotons of TNT, so one person weighing 190lbs has the energy potential of 88,403 times more explosive energy in me than a bomb that destroyed an entire city, and this applies to every human being.
This is the destructive potential in Einstein’s formula found in every human being. Much less known and perhaps never spoken of, is that when applied to a human, it can indicate the intrinsic constructive potential. Think, my dear reader, and use your potential.
