Rapping Our Way to Einstein

Now you know us platoists and our academy had issues about music. The influence it has in soothing it's way into the minds heart of hearts. So I thought, why not, make an exception here, because I like the example associated of "the pretty girl and the hot stove", taken to a new level of conceptualization in society.

A Chladni plate consist of a flat sheet of metal, usually circular or square, mounted on a central stalk to a sturdy base. When the plate is oscillating in a particular mode of vibration, the nodes and antinodes set up form a complex but symmetrical pattern over its surface. The positions of these nodes and antinodes can be seen by sprinkling sand upon the plates;

Although, like the segregation of a racial divide and people, I do not like the innuendo's of association, by gender either. I thought the feelings here, were more important and explained things in a way that help to define the "emotive suffering" and "mental fleetingness of happiness," in ways that we are not accustomed too.

For me this is a philosophical difference, much as one would see the value of music as analogy of the field and the allowable concept of penetration(holes), deep into consciousness. It would not be unfair to see mental abstractions of mathematics held in this light, devoid of any "emotional connotation?"

DJ Vader told BBC Radio 4's Today programme he had not thought much of physics at school and had spent most of his time playing truant.

But he had been inspired by Einstein's explanation of his theory, which reads: "When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour it seems like a minute.

"But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and its longer than any hour. That's relativity."

DJ Vader said: "At the time I was thinking of me and my girlfriend being together and definitely it does go really quickly."
