Speed of Light

leave a comment »

Albert EinsteinAlbert Einstein was an interesting person, and is probably most famous for his short but simple equation, E= mc^2, where E = energy, m = mass, and c = the speed of light. In short, the equation states that energy is matter, and they are interchangeable. The equation also implies two other things. If one were to go the speed of light, one would become light and would essentially exist everywhere. At the same time, time, would shrink and cease to exist. It is a great metaphor for all the things most search for in life, whether it is material gain, or knowledge, or wisdom. People seek to learn all that they can and acquire all that they can, but yet they skirt the most important lesson.
