A young girl writes to Albert Einstein
Loved reading about this in his biography, thanks for sharing! Later, someone asked if he believed in free will (something I wonder what the girl meant by pray) and he said this:
"No. I am a determinist. Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control...– We all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible player."
Spirit of the universe!
When kids ask you questions you must give a full and charitable answer! I love that he took the time to respond.
He writes without patronising his correspondent. What a marvellous man.
Thank to sharing this historical letter.
This was great. Thank you for sharing.
