Several intelligent freethinking individuals have occupied the world. Who, at first glance may appear to be completely incompetent and distorted as contributing members of our society. For Albert Einstein, he seemed to be no exception. Growing up having had a speech disability, "Einstein initially was thought to be simple-minded, and consequently would not achieve much in his lifetime." In contrast, Einstein has manipulated almost every thought and question, which existed in his time and in ours. Whereas many mathematicians, scientist, and or philosophers were unable to answer unimaginable questions and theories that would improve the world we live in. That was no surprise to anyone. Einstein was able with little endeavor to organize and formulate the most complex equations and designs, making light of problems previously thought to be impossible. Einstein's education, life experiences, and "freethinking ability contributed to his success and ability in his life." Albert Einstein, to this day is still one of the most accomplished and respected mathematician/ inventor in the world. Einstein's journey was one filled with challenges, discoveries, and many accomplishments. On March 14, 1879, Albert Einstein was born in Wurttemberg, Germany to Jewish parents Hermann, and Pauline Einstein. Shortly after Albert's birth, his father and mother eagerly collected their personal belongings as well as their new baby boy and moved to the Kingdom of Munich, now Germany. Following his families move to Munich, in November of 1881 Einstein's parents gave birth to a little girl, with such a delicate sweet face. They named her Maria, who was soon to become Albert's new little angelic best friend. Growing up Albert had a relatively normal childhood. He was opinionated, stubborn, and did not take too kindly to authority figures, like any young child, which for Einstein would in turn get him expelled from school and told that he would never amount to anything. In the following years, it was apparent to many that Einstein would in fact exceed everyone's expectations, even his own. In Munich around 1884, Einstein's parents had learned that Einstein would have difficulties learning to speak and would need a private education to improve his speaking ability. Albert's father gave Einstein a compass at the age of five, while he was sick in bed with a cold. Hermann had unknowingly altered Albert's future, by simply providing his son a compass, which provoked his curiosity in the unknown and started raising questions ultimately leading to the desire to know more about motion. School did not come so easy for Einstein he more often than not ended the school day in the Head Masters office. His attitude seemed to get worse; he had no respect for authority and continuously was different. The title different is not always intended for negative uses, for Einstein it meant brilliant, mysterious, and intriguing. If Einstein had not been unique and held fast to his beliefs who knows how his life might have ended. In the world, our stones are not permanently placed. In fact, our path is constantly shifting like the tectonic plates under the earth's surface. Every movement is countered by a reaction of that movement. If one stone shifts, your life could spiral in a direction unforeseen; this was the case for Einstein. In our society, you are taught to conform, to be normal. In reality normal is boring, Time Magazine does not feature normal everyday members of society in fact it features people like "The Great Albert Einstein." Einstein was twelve when he was introduced to geometry. The subject impressed and intrigued him in a way no one could ever explain. In 1896 to further Einstein's education, he attended The Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Z?rich to pursue a career teaching mathematics and physics, which would end up being the place he would meet his future wife. Upon graduating in 1901 from the Polytechnic School in Z?rich, Einstein received his citizenship from Switzerland after being dislocated for four years prior. With no luck of finding work after graduating, he eventually landed a job at the Swiss Patent Office in Berlin. While working at the Patent Office, he acquired a nickname, Big Al, obtained his doctorates degree, and became a professor at Z?rich where he attended school earlier in life. With all that he was, research became one of Einstein's favorite past times, quoting "If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?" - Albert Einstein. At the time, Big Al did not know his quote would go down in history like everything else he did. The unknown was fascinating to Einstein, if he was unaware as to how objects worked, he would then be consumed by the question, and nothing else mattered. Unbeknownst to the many people of Einstein's time, great works were being created for all to enjoy and are still being enjoyed today. Einstein started a family in 1903 by marrying an old schoolmate whose name was Milvea Marci. Their relationship started in 1896 when they attended the Polytechnic Institute together. Einstein's wife Milvea contributed a great deal to Einstein's discoveries and theories. They had three children together, two boys, and a little girl. Early in Einstein and Milvea's relationship, Milvea became pregnant with their first child out-of-wedlock, thus causing problems in Milvea's family, and ultimately leading to the illegitimate child being given up for adoption upon the request of her parents. She once again became pregnant in 1904 with their first little boy named Hans. The small family traveled frequently to see family and friends, living life to the fullest. Einstein had what was called a "miracle year", in which he explained Brownian motion, explained the photoelectric effect, and first proposed his theory of relativity to the scientific community. In 1905, Einstein's theory of relativity became one of the greatest historical accomplishments of modern physics. Einstein's theory of relativity stemmed from a thought he had when he was a mere sixteen years old, he had imagined what it would feel like to ride his bike on a beam of light. The theory of relativity states that space and time are relative concepts, rather than absolute concepts, in turn altered the world's knowledge of relativity, while laying the groundwork for atomic energy. Questions were asked, "Are items held fixed, or are they in constant motion?" Big Al established the well-known formula E=mc^2, as well as used his quantum theory to explain the photoelectric effect which was used to produce sound in motion pictures. Albert Einstein was a true visionary; his great accomplishments started with a single idea and ended changing the world. Knowledge and desire to learn drove Einstein to become whom he was and has left a lasting impression on our population. In the course of Einstein's career he spoke to President Roosevelt and informed him, that America needed to create the first atomic bomb and urged that it happen before Germany. Consequently, this theory did not end so well for Einstein in the public's eye. To this day people still believe that Einstein is the cause, reason, and mind behind the Atomic Bomb, thus changing people personal feeling about the great works of Einstein. Einstein did not intend for violence to occur when his idea became a reality. He intended for his creation to be used as a tool to keep American soil safe from foreign legions, in fear of retaliation from non-allies. For example, guns and knives are created for safety in this day and age, yes an atomic bomb is on a larger scale, however when another country is trying so desperately to complete their prototype of the Atomic Bomb you have to evaluate and consider their intentions. Einstein died on April 18, 1955 at Princeton, New Jersey from a ruptured aortic aneurysm. His life was filled with adventures that started with one thought and took him to places that he had only imagined. He brought hope, inspiration, and dedication to everyone that has been told no, or you just are not good enough. Einstein's life works could not have been made a reality if he had simply conformed to the sociological views of society. His life story is one to motivate others to pursue their dreams because he made his dreams a reality. Intelligent freethinking individuals, whom at first glance may appear to be completely incompetent and distorted as contributing members of our society end up to be the most intellectual scholars of our time. Albert Einstein has proven repeatedly that you cannot judge a book by its cover. He presses that imagination and discovery are the keys to success. "You cannot discover if you cannot imagine." One must do the research and dig to find answers. Einstein has altered every thought, question, and accomplished so much to improve the world we live in; his accomplishments include his education, life experiences, and freethinking ability.
