You’ve no doubt seen that Disney animated film, “The Emperor’s New Groove”. Nevertheless, I didn’t, which will fortunately not detract from my discussion here on how Albert Einstein got his going on.
Allow me to pontificate…..er……eeeeeeeeeeeelaborate.
Listen my children and you shall here
how Al got his groove on after drinking a beer
It was a stout a shade darker
than you’re probably used to injesting
but that’s what they drink in Germany
So, it’s beyond contesting.
So, off went Al to his usual pub
with his head jutting up slightly
when a passerby says, “pardon me bub.”
But, Al was lost in thought and then he arrived
where he was lost no more, said a psychological bribe
He saw the tavern just ahead
Lichtenstein’s was brightly lit up
with toasts to the chancellor and his newly groomed pup
He pushed past all of the reverie, drunken fools and the like
and took a seat in the back with his notebook and his pipe.
It was then that he looked like a man dosing after a hard day
but this couldn’t be further from the truth
as his focus pinpointed the grey
matter, through the right sphere
He took his last sip of his dark brewed stout beer
and journeyed down to the center of the parietal lobe
that may supplement your brain to function more like a globe
a sphere, a more natural way to access and process information
and this was fascinating to him but he passed it by still
ignoring the lingering ego for a much higher will
To get to the center, where the mind chatter can be quieted
to the point of almost absolute silence except for your breathing
Al opened the door and it creaked from years of entropy and non use
and closed it behind him except for a noose
that he wrapped around his left leg
to ensure he could find his way back to that tavern and their beloved keg
But, now the leg felt less and less as a tug from the noose
until his coming in became forgotten and all that remained was the juice
The liquid elixir, the wine the cup which he drank
that separated his experience “In The World” from the one here he was in.
And from here is no journey impossible to forge
For it is all around you if you but reach out and ask
Just speak what you desire, make an image in your mind
and so quickly will it manifest into reality from the mind
This is where Al stayed, riding the light beam through space
this is where he contemplated General Relativity and erased
a thousand years of Aristotelian logic and method
which yielded the science they understood until now
Until now where opposed to Aristotle, something new was being revealed
Not to overshadow him but to foreshadow a new age of understanding.
Al just soaked it up, playing with the possibilities like a child
until he gently willed himself out of it like from a light year to a mile
And opened his eyes to the still voracious reverie which ensued
ready to resume enjoying what he experienced and the still potent brew.
