When Gravity Becomes Strong......

The value of non-Euclidean geometry lies in its ability to liberate us from preconceived ideas in preparation for the time when exploration of physical laws might demand some geometry other than the Euclidean. Bernhard Riemann

It is very important that this progresssion of thinking leaves the surface of the earth for a greater understanding of where our views might be taken from? If we move ourselves beyond the two dimension surface of earth's fields, the agricultural enlightenment, was greatly enhanced from the sheep herders(Romans) of days of ole.

The developement in dimensional perspective is well understood in the art that has progressed in this evolutionary context as well. One has to wonder indeed why Penrose would seek solace from Escher in the developement of the idealizations of thinking beyond the box:)To see such tessellations and intelocking fundamentals of black and white to realize, that dependance of one or the other defines the lines of existance.

Is it so clear here in the understanding of gravity? I think Einstein made this as simple as one can imagine, and to leave eucldean perspective you had to leave the planet earth in our thinking. It was a transformative picture of what we had always learnt to deal within in engaging the dynamics of earth everyday happenings. That the graduation and metamorphsis of thinking, was a greater realization from viewing the planet earth as a whole.

Can it go from beyond here, to a more illustrious view. You bet it can.

According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, the sun's gravity causes starlight to bend, shifting the apparent position of stars in the sky.

I am sort of updating here from a previous post on how one can use images to orientate the rise from euclidean perspective. Dilation and the Cosmic String

This is a very important lesson for me in moving into non eucldean perspectives and may seem trivial to some. How very important this is, is part and parcel of understanding GR . Without this geometrical principle being developed within the mind, then why would any topic like GR make sense on a cosmological scale?

Developing this intuitiveness about curvature parameters was very helpful in getting to the senssation of lensing and time dilation. Einstein in his provoking thoughts about a pretty girl was most helpful in orientating a much subtle logic to what curvature implied, once this progression is understood in relation to photon interaction.

On the Effects of External Sensory Input on Time DilationA. Einstein, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, N.J.

Abstract: When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

As the observer's reference frame is crucial to the observer's perception of the flow of time, the state of mind of the observer may be an additional factor in that perception. I therefore endeavored to study the apparent flow of time under two distinct sets of mental states.

Einstein@home is a program that uses your computer's idle time to search for spinning compact stars (such as pulsars) using data from the LIGO and GEO gravitational wave detectors. While we are still testing, we are close to deploying a production version of Einstein@home, as part of the American Physical Society's World Year of Physics 2005 activities.
