entury and one of the greatest thinkers of all time. The dramatic rethinking that Relativity Theory impelled in our understanding of the physical world - and its continuing influence on intellectual theorizing in many aspects of science - was no less INTEGRAL ART than the sheer breadth of talent that Leonardo da Vinci displayed.What may need to be emphasised here is the vital part played by visual-spatial thinking in his formulation of theories and his radical solutions to problems.As a child, however, Einstein was far from being regarded as specially gifted and reports of his early life and education give several strong indications of dyslexia. Einstein's memory for words was poor and throughout his life he frequently misspelled names of places and people. He also continued to make errors of simple calculation, while being able “to handle deftly the most difficult tensor calculus” as Hoffmann stated. Obviously this did not endear him to his teachers in youth - yet as Thomas West has said - in time Einstein became teacher to all his professors, making the lectures he did not attend outdated and the books he did not study obsolete.
As is known by many I was born a dyslexic in the world of lexics,
but supported by family and life, enabled to truly understand the
mis-guided code of the lexics in order to fit. Since my early awareness
of Jung, Graves, Carson, Harding and Pirsig at Grammar School,
I have followed my own voyage of discovery and know as da Vinci
would know that your lexic masterpiece will forever sit next to
Pirsig's original. You must now think about your own "Lila".
