Topic of the Day: relativity

20 March 1916: Albert Einstein publishes his general theory of relativity

Relativity and rivalry

Merit exists in relativity.
Urge to grow exists in rivalry.
Both are bad in their resultant effects.
Residues are prejudice and enmities.

His chosen comrades thought at school
He must grow a famous man;
He thought the same and lived by rule,
All his twenties crammed with toil;
'What then?' sang Plato's ghost. 'What then?'

If you seek the facts of life,
Papist intellectuals
Can be very misleading.
