The Story of Einstein (The Story of Einstein’s Childhood)
Isaacson commented on Einstein’s kindness and aloofness, brilliant talent, but also a little confused. Others say that Einstein was a genius with two heads, but at the same time he was also very hardworking. As a scientist, Einstein was undoubtedly the most influential person of the 20th century. Today, let’s take a look at the childhood story of such a legendary Einstein, an introduction to Einstein.
Einstein’s Childhood Story
We never deny that Einstein is a genius, and even think that Einstein is not only a genius, but also a hardworking genius. So is it the childhood of a genius? There will always be some extraordinary stories. It is said that Einstein was born with a large back of his head and a angular skull. This unusual shape of his skull became a permanent feature of Einstein. Einstein’s mother has been horrified by the strange skull of one of her fetuses. Einstein’s grandma saw her grandson and whispered, “It’s too heavy! It’s too heavy!” She wasn’t referring to his weight, but his big, strange head that disturbed her. How can a weak body support such a huge head?
Of course, they haven’t realized that this big, weird head is pregnant with a great consciousness. Of course, childhood Einstein could not explain his personality to the world. When he is a little lonely, he always likes to be alone and often avoids his friends on purpose.
According to Einstein’s sister later recalled, “Every time he did that, his face would turn pale, the tip of his nose would turn white, and he couldn’t control himself.” Several times, Einstein Throwing things at my sister who is 2 years younger than me, and throwing a tantrum. When Einstein was 5 years old, his parents hired a tutor for him. In one class, Einstein presumably realized that he was about to lose his free personal world. He loses his temper again, throwing a chair at the teacher as a demonstration. Einstein’s parents had to end an education that had not yet begun. Little Einstein doesn’t like socializing with people, and prefers games that require patience and tenacity, such as building a house with thin pieces of paper, and will never give up if he fails. For Einstein in childhood, independent personality was just an “empty basket” that needed to be enriched with spiritual and cultural connotations.
The first thing to put into this “empty basket” is music. When Einstein was 3 years old, one day, her mother Pauline sat in front of the piano, gently touching the keys. The beautiful melody is like a gurgling brook, flowing out from under her fingers. Suddenly, she felt someone was behind her. When she turned her head, little Einstein was tilting his head, listening to the wonderful music engrossed. The young mother was very happy. She said: “Look at you, you are serious like a big professor! Honey, why don’t you speak?” Einstein didn’t answer. He’s only 3 years old and can’t say exactly what telepathic music is. His big shiny brown eyes shone with happiness.
The piano rang again. It is Beethoven’s sonata. baby einstein rockingWith swaying steps, I silently plunged into a new world, where there is only beauty, harmony, and sublime. The quiet little Einstein was fascinated by music. He started playing the violin at the age of six. A few years later, Einstein’s only pastime was music. Accompanied by his mother, he was soon able to play sonatas by Mozart and Beethoven. According to Einstein’s psychological temperament, if he had been born in the Renaissance, history might have made him an outstanding artist, but in Germany at the end of the 19th century, a craze for exploring the unknown world with scientific inventions was on the rise.
Various scientific inventions are rapidly changing people’s sensory world with unprecedented sound, light, electricity, and chemistry. All kinds of new technological gadgets bring endless interest to the new generation, attracting their interests and arousing their thirst for knowledge. The light of science illuminates the earth, and also illuminates the growth path of young Einstein. The day before Einstein went to school, he fell ill. The originally quiet child was more like a docile kitten, squatting quietly at home, motionless. The father brought a small compass to amuse his son. Einstein held the compass in his little hand, but saw the needle in the middle of the compass shaking slightly, pointing north. He turned the plate around, but the pointer didn’t listen to him, and still pointed north. Einstein hugged the compass to his chest again, turned around, and twisted it vigorously, but the needle came back, still pointing north.
No matter how he turned his body, the thin red magnetic needle stubbornly pointed to the north. Little Einstein forgot about his illness, leaving only a look of surprise and confusion: what makes it keep pointing north? There is nothing around this needle. What force is pushing it north? Einstein, 67, is still deeply moved by his childhood “compass experience”. Later, he also said in his “self-report”: “When I was a child of four or five years old, I experienced this kind of wonder when my father showed me the compass. This compass moved in such a definite way that it Not in keeping with things that can find their place in the world of unconscious concepts, nor in their nature (functions related to direct ‘contact’).
I still remember, at least believe I do, that this This experience made a deep and lasting impression on me. I felt that there must be something deep behind things. Nothing a man sees from childhood elicits such a reaction; he responds to falling objects, to wind and rain, to the moon or Will it fall, not surprised by the difference between living and non-living things. Obviously, people’s experience thinks that there is something and a force in the “empty” space that forces objects to move in a certain direction.
Although this accidental event was small and happened long before Einstein became a scientist, this strange experience was extremely important to his later scientific thinking and research. Later The properties of “fields” and the problems of space have so fascinated physicists. In the general theory of relativity, Einstein finally solved these mysteries that sprouted in childhood. At that time, however, they were only Appeared in front of his eyes. The littleThe small compass, the magnetic needle that moves according to certain rules, aroused the curiosity of the future master of science and explored the whole story. And this sacred curiosity is the seedling of many scientific theories.
Introduction to Einstein
German-American scientist Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879-April 18, 1955 ), a famous theoretical physicist and the founder of the theory of relativity. Born on March 14, 1979 in a small proprietor’s family in Hamm, Germany, died on April 18, 1955 in Princeton, USA.
Einstein loved music since he was a child and was a skilled violinist, which was probably influenced by his mother. It has been mentioned above, so I won’t repeat it here. In 1900, he graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and obtained Swiss citizenship. He later found a permanent job at the Swiss Patent Office in Bern, where he achieved a series of early historic achievements. In 1909, he entered academia for the first time, becoming an associate professor of theoretical physics at the University of Zurich. In 1914, at the invitation of m. planck and w. nernst, he returned to germany to serve as director of the wilhelm kim institute of physics and professor at the university of berlin.
When Hitler came to power in 1933, Einstein was persecuted for the first time because he was Jewish and firmly defended democracy. He was forced to move to Princeton, USA. He became a U.S. citizen in 1940 and retired in 1945. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) proposed special relativity and general relativity in 1905 and 1915 respectively, which reinterpreted the basic concepts of physics, revised Newtonian mechanics, replaced the traditional theory of universal gravitation, and made physics Theoretical predictions are more accurate. At this time, Einstein and Newton were juxtaposed giants in the history of physics.
1905 was an incredible year in Einstein’s life and in the history of physics. Einstein’s superhuman wisdom burst out with dazzling light. At the age of 26, without any other academic connections, he published three papers in one year that stunned the physics world: the quantum theory of light (explaining the photoelectric effect), Brownian motion (proving the existence of molecules), special relativity (modifying Newtonian Mechanics). In the next few years, Einstein rose from an unknown young student to an internationally renowned scholar.
Famous European universities compete for courtesy. In 1912, Einstein happily returned to his alma mater in Zurich to teach, but soon after, he was invited by the German scientific community to do research at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin. While working in Germany, he got divorced and later married his cousin.
In 1915, Einstein published another world-famous work – general relativity, which replaced Newton’s theory of universal gravitation and had a profound impact on the theoretical development of physics and the understanding of cosmic phenomena . In 1921, Einstein was awarded the photon theory to explain the photoelectric effect.He won the Nobel Prize in Physics and is well known all over the world. At this time, the German Nazi Party was rising and anti-Semitic activities were spreading everywhere. Einstein felt extremely disturbed and hated the militaristic atmosphere prevailing at that time.
In 1933, Hitler came to power and persecuted the Jews. At this time, Einstein was visiting the United States. In order to avoid Hitler’s assassination bounty, he settled in Princeton University and became a professor at the Institute for Advanced Study. Because he was worried that the German Nazis would create a bomb first and endanger the world, in 1939, at the request of some famous nuclear physicists in the United States, Einstein wrote to President Roosevelt of the United States, suggesting that the scientific community get together to develop a bomb. *. This is the origin of the famous Manhattan Project.
Although Einstein once advocated the creation of ***, he was always a fanatical pacifist and strongly advocated the use of peaceful means to resolve international disputes. Einstein died peacefully in 1955 at the age of 76. His passing is undoubtedly another great loss for the world.
Exclusive view on the world: Einstein is a scientist with intelligence more than most people, half of which comes from innate, generally from acquired efforts. Therefore, the acquired efforts of friends are still very important, especially the interests cultivated in childhood. It is actually a very lucky thing to work hard when you can still work hard. Maybe because Einstein was a genius, he suffered from a loneliness we never had.
