What was made with Einstein`s brain after his death?
on March 14, 1879 in the German city of Ulm Albert Einstein was born. He did not give the child any signs of genius and his father, the managing director of electrochemical plant, took a wise step, having charged training of the child in the brother, and in combination, to the co-manager. However, the algebra and geometry not really - that were pleasant to the young man, they demanded assiduity and big work on storing. Other business - theoretical physics! It allowed to have a bigger scope for flight of thought, and put “ beginner “ the genius on one - two steps are higher than those who taught him. In its scientific researches they were obviously weak …
However, is authentically established that the Polytechnical federal school in Zurich which was attended by Albert not really - that attracted it. Admissions in occupations became even more often, and tightly became attached reputation of absolutely dull young man to the careless student. When the course of school remained behind, nobody wanted to hire young Albert, doubting that Einstein something will not bungle.
However, there is nothing surprising - what does not attract the pupil, becomes for him a dark, frightens him and beats off any hunting to be torn through a jungle unclear to a torch of knowledge.
Eventually, on Einstein waved a hand and if Milev Maric who studied with future genius at physical faculty in Zurich hardly the world would learn not love to the Serbian also about the theory of relativity, and about other fundamental works of the great scientist. But Mileva firmly believed that it is possible to make the person of Albert, and her efforts were rewarded. During a time of the first true love Einstein was ready to move heaven and earth for Milev!
However, with children they were not lucky. The oldest daughter was born with a Down syndrome and mother sent her to a shelter for defective children. Speak, daddy so never and visited her. One of two sons - Eduard finished the life in a madhouse, and the second, Hans Albert, was professor of civil engineering at the Californian university.
However, marriage with Mileva her terrible, but not unreasonable jealousy broke. Because Einstein quite could become the author of the theory of relative fidelity because liked to stand out before very young enthusiastic fans, often breaking laws of decency. But the hot Serbian did not forgive to the husband the disrespectful attitude towards herself. Well, the genius was picked up by the cousin Alberta - Elza for whom the word “ incest “ it did not seem something like a huge abyss.
About women the whole treatises are written to Einstein`s lives, but much less we know about where after his death the brain of the great scientist got to.
On April 18, 1955 about one o`clock in the morning: at the scientist the aorta burst and heart stopped. Einstein`s body was cremated, and ashes are dispelled over the river Delaware. And the brain of the dead was kept for medical research; some scientists hoped to find in it a key to his genius.
It is remarkable that Einstein did not give any concrete instructions concerning the brain during lifetime. But the pathologist Thomas Harvey solved in own way, and after opening suddenly asked heart-broken Hans Albert whether he can investigate a brain of his father? Naturally, already everything was indifferent for that, he told only: do that want! The main thing if there are any results, they will have to are printed in scientific magazines! “
By the way, after a while one of acquaintances of the wife of Thomas Harvey paid attention of newsdealers that that stored Einstein`s brain in bank which stood in a basement of his house. Then he got divorced from wife and left, and the brain still remained there. The thrown spouse, allegedly exclaimed: “ I want that somebody relieved me of this devil piece! “. But, most likely, it was the duck because Harvey practically did not leave Einstein`s brain, carried it for itself everywhere.
Of course, from the very beginning it was grandiose swindle because neither by then, nor now scientists did not remove a formula as far as the size of a brain influences intelligence.
So “ dead brain “ it is unlikely would be useful also for scientific experiences. Though it is necessary to pay tribute to Harvey, it did not begin to do on it business though the offer on purchase of a brain from some American and European millionaires arrived. And though Thomas did cuts of a brain and sent them to researchers from scientific institutes of America, Germany, Japan, China and other countries, but did not take for it money unless on post costs.
From the date of Einstein`s death passed already more than half a century. And still any scientist did not manage to surprise the world with scientific sensation. Though, you understand, many literally were puffed up it to make! There are statements that in Einstein`s brain it is more “ genius cages “ than at others. It is the theory, and in practice scientists found out that Einstein`s brain is 15 percent wider, than on average.
And there is a wish to finish this story with bright supervision of not less ingenious Polish aforist Stanislav Lets`s Hedgehogs. Once one fan asked the satirist: “ Probably, it is very difficult to invent everything from the head? “ On what Lets right there gave out: “ Difficult, but I think that from a leg it would be even more difficult “.
Each person is ingenious in own way. Whether but all are able to use it for all hundred percent? Doubted that this task of a shoulder - a brain has a rest! Too you adapt to the general opinion - it and will not strain! And the most important - do not try to solve others problems for others! Unless it is possible to get into a skin of other person and to look on the world at him with eyes?!
