Having watched the four videos above... the answer to our
*Societal Decay*
is found in the words on the face of our common Penny.
*And... Believe In Them*

Besso... I want to know how God created this world.

I'm not interested in this or that phanonia.

And... the spectrum of this or that element.

SEE That! The Details.  - Albert Einstein

Michele Angelo Besso (25 May 1873 – 15 March 1955) was a Swiss/Italian engineer.

Besso was born in Riesbach of Jewish Italian (Sephardi) descent. He was a close friend of Albert Einstein during his years at the Federal Polytechnic Institute in Zurich, today the ETH Zurich, and then at the patent office in Bern. Besso is credited with introducing Einstein to the works of Ernst Mach, the sceptical critic of physics who influenced Einstein's approach to the discipline. Einstein called Besso "the best sounding board in Europe" for scientific ideas.

Besso died in Geneva, aged 81. In a letter of condolence to the Besso family, Albert Einstein included his now famous quote "Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion." Einstein died one month and 3 days after his friend, at 18 April 1955.


Albert Einstein - German: (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist. He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "services to theoretical physics", in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory.

Near the beginning of his career, Einstein thought that Newtonian mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. This led to the development of his special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation in 1916, he published a paper on general relativity. He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory, which led to his explanations of particle theory and the motion of molecules. He also investigated the thermal properties of light which laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. In 1917, Einstein applied the general theory of relativity to model the large-scale structure of the universe.

He was visiting the United States when Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933 and, being Jewish, did not go back to Germany, where he had been a professor at the Berlin Academy of Sciences. He settled in the U.S., becoming an American citizen in 1940. On the eve of World War II, he endorsed a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt alerting him to the potential development of "extremely powerful bombs of a new type" and recommending that the U.S. begin similar research. This eventually led to what would become the Manhattan Project. Einstein supported defending the Allied forces, but largely denounced the idea of using the newly discovered nuclear fission as a weapon. Later, with the British philosopher Bertrand Russell, Einstein signed the Russell–Einstein Manifesto, which highlighted the danger of nuclear weapons. Einstein was affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, until his death in 1955.

Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers along with over 150 non-scientific works. On 5 December 2014, universities and archives announced the release of Einstein's papers, comprising more than 30,000 unique documents. Einstein's intellectual achievements and originality have made the word "Einstein" synonymous with "genius".


Most biographies of Albert Einstein focus primarily on his work and philosophies, and do not provide much information about his close friendships, especially with Michelle Besso, an engineer, and Heinrich Zangger, a professor of forensic medicine at the University of Zurich. The influence these two men had Einstein’s life, both personally and professionally, were profound and lasted throughout his lifetime.

Michele Angelo Besso (Born May 25,1873) was a Swiss/Italian engineer of Jewish/Italian descent. In 1896, Einstein and Besso met at a musical gathering in Zurich. At the time, both were studying electrical engineering there at the Federal Polytechnic Institute. Besso was six years older than Einstein, and they formed the closest relationship of Einsteins life, as confidant in both his personal life and research. He once called Besso “the best sounding board in Europe” for scientific ideas. They both enjoyed playing the violin, and Einstein respected Bessos intelligence.

Besso helped to get Einstein a job at the Swiss patent office where he worked. He is also credited with introducing Einstein to the works of Ernst Mach, an Austrian physicist and philosopher who is noted for his contributions to physics and the study of shock waves. Mach was a prominent figure in his time for his position on logical positivism, and Einstein was drawn to his ideas through his criticism of Sir Isaac Newton. Mach greatly influenced Einstein’s approach, and later his theory of relativity.

After completing the statistical and light quanta papers in 1905, Einstein finally was able to put his mind fully to the problem of motion, something he had been thinking about for some time. As he later recalled, he “felt a great difficulty to resolve the question… I had wasted time almost a year in fruitless considerations…” Einsteins turning point, personally and for modern physics, came from Besso, who had helped Einstein get a job at the Swiss patent office. He later related how this unexpected turn had come about in a lecture he gave in Kyoto in 1922. That was a very beautiful day when I visited him (Besso) and began to talk with him as follows:  I have recently had a question which was difficult for me to understand.  So I came here today to bring with me a battle on the question.  Trying a lot of discussions with him, I could suddenly comprehend the matter.  Next day I visited him again and said to him without greeting “Thank you.  I’ve completely solved the problem.”

It had become clear to Einstein during his exchange with Besso that the correlation of time at different spatial locations is not absolutely defined, and there must be some form of communication between these locations. This concept, of two dimensions working at the same time (or parallel universes) came to be.Five weeks after his conversation Einstein completed “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”, in which he presented the special theory of relativity.

From his letters to Heinrich Zangger we are able to conclude that Einstein held a great deal of trust in Zanggers friendship, and sought out his advice on a number of things in his life. I was originally supposed to become an engineer, but the thought of having to expend my creative energy on things that make practical everyday life even more refined, with a loathsome capital gain as the goal, was unbearable to me. – 1918. In 1911, Zangger was instrumental in getting Einstein appointed to hold a chair of theoretical physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.  Later he wrote to Zangger, The more success the quantum theory has, the sillier it looks. May 20,1912.


I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to ya one of these days

If i don't meet you no more in this world then I'll meet ya on the next one
And don't be late... Don't be late

'Cause i'm a voodoo child voodoo child
Lord knows i'm a voodoo child
A-uh... don't take no for an answer
So don't be late... Don't be late
