Albert Einstein was one of the greatest minds to ever live—not just in the realm of physics, but also when it comes to human relationships. His acts of compassion, careful thinking, and inspiration to the arts on top of his achievements in the sciences have been well noted. In fact, Einstein saw the distinction of science and art not as one of content, but as one of expression: “If what is seen and experienced is portrayed in the language of logic, then it is science. If it is communicated through forms whose constructions are not accessible to the conscious mind but are recognized intuitively, then it is art.” A diagram of gravitational-wave-making black hole binaries reminds one of the two sharks circling their prey, or maybe of a Daoist yin-yang symbol haphazardly painted onto an electrical box in a condemned Shikumen complex. Looking at it, I’m reminded of Manet’s Olympia. Of worlds touching, not yet colliding. Of unknowns becoming known. Of a sort of winding down or up of something terribly exciting.
