A Muggle’s Bibliothek
      The magician Arthur Schopenhauer replaced the Kantian "thing in itself" in his  major work "The World as Will and Imgination" in 1819 by the term of the Will.  The metaphysical extension of the term Will processed J.K. Rowling in her highly  successful children's book series, "Harry Potter and ..." in a very impressive way.  The performance of Schopenhauer was to have made known Indian philosophy in  Germany and he conveyed that our senses are also subject to illusions. He  generalized in such a way that the world is relative and imagination and the world  would be identical. A very good sorcerer's apprentice  of Schopenhauer was Albert  Einstein. His merit is that he considers the observer in his interaction with the  world. This is the revolutionary new in physics that did not exist before. From  Schopenhauer, he took the idea of relativity, namely that there is no difference  between subject and object, nor between the world and its image. He used this idea  in his special theory of relativity, under the title "On the Electrodynamics of solids"  as he applied the Lorentz transformation to Maxwell's equations to symmetrize  them and so leaving the magnetic forces behind  from the perspective of a fast  electron. As a result, he conveyed to the reader the impression that they were gone.  He probably had no idea what spirits he called by it. But the attentive reader of the  Einstein article should not be missed that one gets while by changing the observer's location, which is a mathematical transformation, a different picture of the world, but only a picture and no other world.  Physically, nothing has changed. This suggests Maya, the Indian goddess of deception, as Schopenhauer could confirm if he had been alive at that time. This is the stuff life of the magician. The crowd of spirits of Monsignor Lemaître created the Lemaître  universe also known as "Big Bang" or "standard model of cosmology" , based on the theory of relativity, the theory holding the  image of the world for the world itself in order to reconcile science with religion. Lemaître himself considered this shift in the  optical spectra for a reference to a escape movement of galaxies, which fits the idea of the world as a surface of an expanding  balloon. Only for realists a surface is no room but at most its image.         No science, even physics can not do without the four basic assumptions. 1. Conservation of mass and energy 2. Causality 3. The unity of opposites 4. The self-similarity instead of symmetry  
Ifn’t would be a wall in the minds of Western thinkers as a result of the commandment You shall have no other gods before me  they would recognize the profound wisdom of the ancient Indian philosophy, where these three principles are symbolized by  impersonal gods. The possibility of personal choice gods cancels the absolutist claim to truth and promoted the democratization of a heterogeneous community of faith. This approach would much closer  to Lemaître's idea than the  claim to absolute truth.
