Once upon a time there was a young dude named Einstein.
When he was born, he didn’t talk.
At least not when other kids did.
He took his sweet time.
Preferring, maybe, to spend the time inside his brain.
Figuring things out.
Later, he turned out to be a pretty smart kid.
Decided to study physics.
Went through the classes, easy peasy.
At that time (he graduated in 1900) the career options were pretty straightforward.
Get a job at a university.
Push the boundaries of science.
Only Einstein couldn’t get a job at a university.
Will Work For Food
Nobody would hire him.
This is why one of the most super-est geniuses of Earth was working in a patent office when he wrote his first groundbreaking paper on special relativity.
When he was 23.
Most people spend their breaks reading the paper or trying to game the office ladies.
Einstein was coming up with theories about the speed of light on his lunch breaks.
So, the money question.
Why couldn’t poor Einstein get a job?
Well, at that time in history, the 1900’s there were HUGE changes.
Advances in travel, in science, in philosophy, etc.
A time period universally referred to as the “gilded age” by economists.
Why the gilded age?
After the end of the Civil War (1865) and the beginning of WWI (1914) the world expanded quickly.
All large trading countries were on the gold standard.
Nobody had central banks messing around with their economies.
Massive economic expansion.
Massive exchanges of ideas.
Go Where The Action Is
So what’s a smart guy like Einstein to do during this wonderful time to be alive?
Sit in a boring physics lecture?
He would hang out, like most other dudes did back then, in the local coffee houses.
You wanted to have an intense discussion about global politics, science, philosophy, where would you go etc?
Head on down to the coffee houses.
The reason Einstein couldn’t get a job was he didn’t have any letters of recommendation from his professors.
Because Einstein never went to class.
He’s known for three major scientific breakthroughs.
The Photoelectric Effect.
The first two, the relativity ones, he discovered by daydreaming.
The last one, he discovered in an actual dream.
Not in the lab, surrounded by equations like they show in the movies.
Inside his own brain.
Greatest Discovery Ever
In fact, he said that when he discovered the key idea within General Relativity, it was the most pleasing, comforting, rewarding feeling in his life.
Of discovering the greatest secret of physics.
Inside his brain.
What’s inside your brain?
