Isn’t this − E=Mc² − something we’ve all heard all of our lives? It seems so fundamental and yet, I recently tried to explain it to someone and got stuck. So, what does it really mean – Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared?
What does it mean besides what the words say on the paper, that is.
I asked a mechanical engineer friend – brilliant guy – and he said, “Hmmm. I haven’t thought about that in a long time. Ask me how to create an entirely new mechanism for heart regulation. I can tell you that right now.”
We all know Einstein’s theory; we’ve all heard it, but it is not a part of our everyday thinking. Or maybe it is, since it is so fundamental to quantum physics and quantum physics is becoming the new bridge to understanding the role consciousness plays in our universe. Maybe it is and so we really need to know it fully.
Here’s an infographic on Einstein’s theory that I found. Simple. Elegant. Playful. Check it out.
