The Highest Form of Musicality

I’m reading a new book called “Quantum,” by Manjit Kumar, which I am enjoying immensely. I’m about halfway through, so I can’t say anything about the book as a whole yet, but there is a quote from Albert Einstein in it that has really moved me. It just grabbed me and won’t let me go.

When Einstein read the published papers of physicist Niels Bohr, which explained the structure of atoms, Einstein said that for him it was, “the highest form of musicality in the sphere of thought.”

Man, I love that. It sits well with my soul.

It communicates this truth: some things just sing. Some things just click with us, in our minds, in our spirits — we identify with them both intellectually and emotionally as right and true — and it’s like hearing a perfect song, perfectly composed, perfectly played.

This is how I feel when I hear the name “Jesus.”

Philippians 2:9-11
Peace to you.

  1. there's something about that Jesus...

  2. Your observation is sitting very well with me. Seriously. Yet jokingly also. Oh man, I'm freaking myself OUT with duality...
