When Albert Einstein died, a stack of white sheets of paper laid on his desktop waiting to be scribbled, a sign of ongoing work. The day before, in the hospital where he laid on his deathbed, he asked only for his glasses, his writing implements and his latest equations. Even though he was dying, he kept working until the very last moment.
“I am not interested in this phenomenon or that phenomenon,” Einstein had said earlier in his life. “I want to know God’s thoughts – the rest are mere details.”
In those final hours of his life, while fading in and out of consciousness, he was working on what he hoped would be his greatest work of all. It was a project of monumental complexity. It was a project that he hoped would unlock the mind of God.
The ideas and concepts that he was juggling in his mind in order to come up with a unified theory of everything, or the ability to read God’s mind as he had mentioned at one point, would disappear with him.
