Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.— Albert Einstein
Fascinating Theories Of Relativity quotations
But the nature of my main work in chemistry can be better represented by more than 280 English publications, of which roughly 200 concern the theory of chemical reactions and related subjects.
When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter.
Mathematics is the queen of sciences and number theory is the queen of mathematics. She often condescends to render service to astronomy and other natural sciences, but in all relations she is entitled to the first rank.
Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein's general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.
What makes the theory of relativity so acceptable to physicists in spite of its going against the principle of simplicity is its great mathematical beauty. This is a quality which cannot be defined, any more than beauty in art can be defined, but which people who study mathematics usually have no difficulty in appreciating.
I count Maxwell and Einstein, Eddington and Dirac, among "real" mathematicians.
The great modern achievements of applied mathematics have been in relativity and quantum mechanics, and these subjects are at present at any rate, almost as "useless" as the theory of numbers.
Have you ever heard of the theory of relativity?" Artemis blinked.
"Is this a joke? I have traveled through time, Doctor. I think I know a little something about relativity.
No, I don't understand my husband's theory of relativity, but I know my husband, and I know he can be trusted.
Internationalism is a social and political theory, a certain concept of how human society ought to be organized, and in particular a concept of how the nations ought to organize their mutual relations.
The further a mathematical theory is developed, the more harmoniously and uniformly does its construction proceed, and unsuspected relations are disclosed between hitherto separated branches of the science.
Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity I do not understand it myself any more.
The theory of relativity worked out by Mr.
Einstein, which is in the domain of natural science, I believe can also be applied to the political field. Both democracy and human rights are relative concepts - and not absolute and general.
To build a theory of international relations on accidents of geography and history is dangerous.
Stock prices are likely to be among the prices that are relatively vulnerable to purely social movements because there is no accepted theory by which to understand the worth of stocks....investors have no model or at best a very incomplete model of behavior of prices, dividend, or earnings, of speculative assets.
Einstein's theory of General Relativity has a mathematical structure very similar to Yang-Mills theory.
Einstein, in the special theory of relativity, proved that different observers, in different states of motion, see different realities.
General relativity is the cornerstone of cosmology and astrophysics.
It has also provided the conceptual basis for string theory and other attempts to unify all the forces of nature in terms of geometrical structures.
The one thing man fears is the unknown.
When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by a World Government, a New World Order.
I can accept the theory of relativity as little as I can accept the existence of atoms and other such dogmas.
From the outset Maxwell's theory excelled all others in elegance and in the abundance of the relations between the various phenomena which it included.
I think, you know, the thing everybody really wants to know anyway is not what the theory of relativity is, but I think what we all really want to know anyways, is whether we're loved or not.
By an application of the theory of relativity to the taste of readers, today in Germany I am called a German man of science, and in England I am represented as a Swiss Jew. If I come to be represented as a bête noire, the descriptions will be reversed, and I shall become a Swiss Jew for the Germans and a German man of science for the English!
Fractals, the theory of relativity, the genome: these are magnificently beautiful constructs.
It is ironic that Einsteins most creative work, the general theory of relativity, should boil down to conceptualizing space as a medium when his original premise [in special relativity] was that no such medium existed[..].
In community we work out our connectedness to God, to one another and to ourselves...In human relationships I learn that theory is no substitute for love. It is easy to talk about the love of GOD; it is another thing to practice it
In Einstein's theory of relativity the observer is a man who sets out in quest of truth armed with a measuring-rod. In quantum theory he sets out with a sieve.
It is almost impossible to have a baseless snobbish opinion of the General Theory of Relativity.
God does not play dice [with the universe]. [Ger., Gott wurfelt nicht.]
When asked what single event was most helpful in developing the Theory of Relativity, Albert Einstein replied, "Figuring out how to think about the problem".
The Theory of Relativity confers an absolute meaning on a magnitude which in classical theory has only a relative significance: the velocity of light. The velocity of light is to the Theory of Relativity as the elementary quantum of action is to the Quantum Theory: it is its absolute core.
It followed from the special theory of relativity that mass and energy are both but different manifestations of the same thing...
Einstein, my upset stomach hates your theory [of General Relativity]—it almost hates you yourself! How am I to' provide for my students? What am I to answer to the philosophers?!!
Combining quantum entanglement with wormholes yields mind boggling results about black holes. But I don't trust them until we have a theory of everything which can combine quantum effects with general relativity. i.e. we need to have a full blown string theory resolve this sticky question.
Identity is marketed in national capitalism as a property.
It is something you can purchase, or purchase a relation to. Or it is something you already own that you can express: my masculinity, my queerness . But identity need not be simply a caption for an image of an unchangeable concrete self. It is also a theory of the future, of history.
