Einstein’s Thought Experiments

Yesterday I read about something that happened to Albert Einstein as a 16 year old. He had a vision where he saw himself riding a bike on a beam of light.

“In 1905, nearly a decade after this first “thought experiment,” Einstein answered these questions with his Special Theory of Relativity. The theory, which revolutionized our understanding of time and space, is based on Einstein’s astonishing recognition that light always travels at a constant speed, regardless of how fast you’re moving when you measure it. Einstein’s explorations into the fundamental properties of light also laid the groundwork for his most impressive achievement, the General Theory of Relativity.”


I was struck by how similar a Thought Experiment seemed to be to what we call energy habitats, autogenic habitats, and what Silvia Hartmann has created as Project Sanctuary. I was delighted to see that science had embraced something which clearly involves giving attention to some part of ourselves that is outside our logic brain.

However in reading more about what happened with Einstein, I found many websites where scientific researchers couldn’t understand or prove how he could have made the leap between his daydream and his theory, even though he attributes the daydream directly to it.

I have one suggestion as to what they might be missing… ENERGY.

They have forgotten about the energy component. The link from the bike riding vision to development theories is unclear from a scientific point of view because perhaps it was more of a feeling or a knowing. If science can’t acknowledge the energy body playing a part, then there are bound to be gaps in thinking and other inexplicable leaps of genius all over the place.

Another famous Thought Experimenter is Charles Darwin:

“He recognized that his own thinking about various aspects of his theory abounded in imaginative con-structions; they were actually doing work. He came to regard such “castles in the air” as a propaedeutic to real scientific discovery.”

Darwin regarded these imaginings as productive and educational. He learned from them.

The discoveries and understandings were gained in energy habitats. If we also can drop in and out of these habitats and have these experiences at will, what are the limits for our potential for discovery, genius and creation? There simply are none.

Does this excite anyone else, thinking what an awesome tool we have within our bodies? These men are famous for their discoveries but ultimately are human just like us.

All we have to do is tap into that source that is right there within us and use it!
