Red Roses and The Theory of Relativity

Einstein’s Miracle Year
110 years ago, Einstein transformed our understanding of the universe with four extraordinary papers (via TED-Ed):

Annus Mirabilis and Einstein
Mirabilia — marvels, miracles
Citations for mirabilia
… I shall like still better to sing it with you when we meet. That that is to be so soon, and under circumstances joyful, are among the mirabilia of this changing world. To see and re-see such a cluster of not indifferent persons as the programme for the wedding gives, will be almost too large a bonne-bouche.
George Eliot to Sara Hennell, September 16, 1843, in George Eliot’s Life as Related in Her Letters and Journals, 1885
The legends of a later time abandoned political implications and made of Alexander a supernatural hero and a wizard to whom all the conceivable mirabilia could be ascribed.

Origin of mirabilia
Mirabilia entered English in the early 1800s from Latin.
1917 – Albert Einstein: General relativity – Einstein followed up his annus mirabilis with his crowning achievement – a theory of gravitation – in 1917. General relativity sealed the seamless meld of space and time and postulated gravity not as Newton’s force but as a property of spacetime itself, arising from the curvature of spacetime by the presence of mass.
Surprises in Physics
Einstein’s Miracle Year
There are names that form part of history and dates that represent milestones of our collective story. 110 years ago, between March and September 1905, the mailbox of the German scientific journal Annales der Physik received four papers that would forever change the laws of physics and, ultimately, our conception of reality: of light, of matter, of time, and of space.
The author was a young man aged 26, Albert Einstein, who worked as a clerk at the patent office in Bern (Switzerland). His career as a physicist was stagnant after the rejection of his doctoral thesis, and his scientific passion had been relegated to his spare time, to the long idle hours in the office and to chats with his colleague and friend Michele Besso. We recall here the four major achievements of Einstein in his miracle year:
On June 9, 1905, Annales der Physik published the dissertations of the patent clerk about the photoelectric effect and the physics of light. “A heuristic point of view of the production and transformation of light” introduced the revolutionary idea that light is composed of both energy and particles: quanta for Einstein, photons for history. This concept that physical systems can behave both as waves (energy) and as particles (matter) would be the seed of one of the two pillars of modern physics: quantum mechanics. Sixteen years later, this theory of the photoelectric effect would take Einstein to the summit of science when, in 1921, he received the Nobel Prize for Physics.
The second and the least important of the papers, published on July 18, was “On the movement of small particles suspended in a stationary liquid, as required by the molecular-kinetic theory of heat.” Although it did not revolutionize the principles of physics, nor earn him a Nobel Prize, Einstein found in a physical phenomenon (Brownian motion) empirical evidence of what many (but nowhere near all) scientists thought at the time, that matter is composed of atoms. In attempting to explain this curious phenomenon, Einstein not only mathematically confirmed the existence of atoms and molecules but, while doing so, he opened a new field in the study of physics, statistical physics.
The third paper that year was perhaps the most groundbreaking. “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies“ arrived at Annales der Physik on June 30 and was published on September 26, 1905. It presented the condensation of Einstein’s new physics in the well-known theory of special relativity, which preceded general relativity (which in 1915 also included the influence of acceleration and gravity). Einstein postulated in this paper that the speed of light is immutable, constant and independent of the observer’s movement. Therefore, except for the constant speed of light, everything is relative, including time, distance and mass.
On November 21, the last of the four papers was published. “Does the inertia of a body depend on its energy content?” is, in effect, an epilogue of all the other papers. The mathematical proof of special relativity and, therefore, the confirmation of the equivalence between matter and energy, were condensed into the most famous equation in history: E = mc2....
“Newton, please forgive me,” Einstein once said, knowing that his advances questioned the foundations that the English scientist had laid in the seventeenth century. In fact, Newton also had his miracle year, since between 1665 and 1666, while sealed up in his house seeking refuge from the plague, he formulated his law of gravitation and his theory of color. But science is like this; for a breakthrough to be made, for a new idea to be confirmed, others have to be discarded.
Perhaps a new scientific revolution will arrive that discards some of Einstein’s ideas, but his method will endure forever. The great merit of Einstein was in not trying to explain the results, the experiments themselves, but rather in developing a theory in which the experiment is the result and not the origin of a phenomenon.

Job Well Done!
Experience the emotions of joy, feelings of contentment and offer your gratitude for the many wonderful things in your life. You have been doing a great job so congratulate yourself and feel a sense of pride for a job well done. Don’t be overly boastful or allow your ego to swell with self-importance, allow that sense of satisfaction from a job well done, that sense of accomplishment to wash over you and use it to help you create more of those feelings in your life.
You are on a path of awakening, of become aware of your magnificence and of realizing that you have more potential that possibly imagined. Give birth to your dreams. Plant the seeds that will be your harvest and then tend it and watch it grow. The perfect time is here, the perfect time is now.
Join with others and learn to work with together and support one another as that is the way. There is enough for everyone and together you are so much stronger as you are a part of each other and this truly is an infinite Universe and so reach for the stars. You are on the right path!
