Einstein was an interesting man, not simply because of his scientific discoveries, but also because he was not a slave to his logic. This was also a feeling man who was a deep observer of life. Some of his conclusions about life were derived not from logic, but rather his innate intuitive sense of the universe, our world, and human nature.
I wonder what he would think of the state of our world right now? I’d like to hear from a scientist who also has a broader sense of life, who is not locked into his narrow lane of expertise, a true creative mind who is able to see the big picture, and who has a sincere love for humanity. Because frankly I’m not seeing a lot of that going on, and I am worried for our future.
One thing I believe Einstein would say (because he apparently did say it!) is that the same kind of thinking that created the problems is not going to solve them.
Increasingly there are new problems. The scientists and politicians who thought restricting everything around us was going to save us are only compounding the problem. Their solutions of restriction do not even make sense any more within the context of the problem itself, or the bigger picture of functionality of our world.
Very soon it will be time to accept that we are not going to be able to fix what we had and restore it to “normal”. We are going to have to imagine our way out of this. We will need to adopt Renaissance thinking, putting our creative minds together in a cooperative community to overcome the problems created by “the experts”. They are making a mess not just of our world, but of our very lives.
We are capable of this, but we first must adopt both the willingness to accept change, and the intent to dig in and do the work, together.
