…the little apartment. And most of his thinking was done in his study, sometimes he can’t quite visualize a curbing of space, and what he does is he takes out his violin, he said that Mozart’s music captures the harmonies of the universe, playing the violin would help him think, Einstein had thus prodigious ability to sit and think, it’s called sits flash, people who knew him said he has this remarkable sits flash where he can concentrate on a problem for hours, for days, even years, in his office there are lots of mathematical manuscripts with equations all over and he’s sitting there thinking, walking around, standing deep in thought. He’s doing pure mathematics in his mind. Science is done by the seat of your pants, we have leaps of object, we have years of wandering in the wilderness, we have frustration, we have pulling our hairs out, that is really a power of genius, the force of will to make all the mistakes to get the right answer.
It was never a moment of oh, no, I’m not gonna have a theory, that, because of his ego, I don’t think it ever occurred to him that he’s not going to have a theory. What matters is you keep your eye on the prize. For Einstein, that prize is the Nobel, proceeds of which he has promised to Meliva and his 2 sons, in 1915, he’s asked to present his general theory of relativity at a prestigious form to the most important German scientists, Einstein accepts, but after 8 years of work, his theory still has 2 major problems, it’s completely unproven and the math appears to be flawed, after nearly a decade of work, Einstein’s general theory of relativity is still far from finished, his math is wrong, and without the correct calculation, his theory can’t be proven, and now he’s scheduled to deliver a paper to the most prestigious scientific gathering in Germany, Prussian Academy, it’s a very formal place, it’s a place of knows how, distinguish it is now, historically significant it is, these weekly meetings you can sort of see as an attempt by you know, at least some of Germany’s leading thinkers to act as if the war were not all there was.
