What is Einstein's Quest?
Einstein's renown as the originator of the Theory of Relativity and E = mc2. “Yet”, writes physicist Brian Greene in an earlier version of his website The Elegant Universe, “many do not know that his greatest theory was never completed. (…) Einstein’s crowning work should have been a ‘unified field theory of matter’, an attempt ‘to read God’s thoughts’. Einstein was simply ahead of his time. More than half a century later, his dream of a unified theory has become the Holy Grail of modern physics.”
For the rest of us Einstein's Quest is The Great Riddle.
It is timeless questions like these: Or looks like the figure below:
What is reality and how is it put together?
Why is everything as it is?
Where do we come from?
Where are we going?
What are our longings trying to tell us?
Does what we long for exist?
Does Happiness exist?
If It does, how can I attain It?
Science is riddle-solving. No more. No less.
Everyone and anyone can try. Anyone and everyone can succeed.
Anyone and everyone can fail.
And so, to anyone and everyone!
These pages may take the form of a project in scientific riddle-solving, but are meant for anyone and everyone; for professional scientists, whether in the natural sciences or other scientific fields, and perhaps most of all, for the rest of us.
The goal is to solve a riddle that has resisted every attempt made to solve it using today’s logic and way of thinking. It has simply been impossible to solve with our current understanding of Nature. The situation is so special, it dictates the rules for scientifically solving The Great Riddle.
To fully understand these rules, we consult those who know them well – philosophers of science and great scientists. What they have to say is the very opposite of what we routinely hear and have become accustomed to believing.
