Relativity: The Special And General Theory


a comprehensible presentation of Albert Einstein with comments and annotations by  Mathias Huefner. Nowhere you will find clearer explains about the basic idea of this theory, as  in this book, what Einstein wrote in 1920. These thoughts now have pulled  nearly a century under its spell physicists all over the world. The unification  of the theory of relativity with quantum theory to quantum gravity, the goal  was not achieved until today and will not succeed. Nothing less than the  world formula, the fundamental law of all nature, one wanted to do with it.  However, a detailed analysis of Einstein's thought-world  shows that it is a  theory of image formation with the theory of relativity. The reason for this is  that Einstein could or wanted not distinguish between space and surface, as  well as between reality and image. The Lorentz transformation on closer  inspection turns out to be a figure similar to a perspective image with a  constant speed of light as the projection centre. This is the reason for the  shortening of time or distance in the direction of movement. Like this the  perspective provides a reduction of all objects in the distance. But from our  experience we know that on the horizon heaven and earth do not collide.  Einstein leads us to believe that the imaging laws pretend us a real world, in  particular that a space is curved. In view, however, he operates with the  picture of a curved surface to a tangent plane.  
In the book, he leads our thoughts, step by step away from reality to the surreality of his theory of relativity without most  readers would have noticed this. Comments are placed in the appropriate places where that happens. The thoughts of the  reader, then caught like moths to the bright street lamp in the darkness. Maybe that's just the magic that people enchants to  believe in an ingenious spirit, just as they believe in the Immaculate Conception or in a big cash prize by Unknown and  other things that contradict their experience but meet to their wishes.
"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."
"Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind."  Albert Einstein in contrast
