The Unreal Universe Reality, as we sense it, is not quite real. The stars we see in the night sky, for instance, are not really there. They may have moved or even died by the time we get to see them. This unreality is due to the time it takes for light from the distant stars and galaxies to reach us. Even the sun that we know so well is already eight minutes old by the time we see it. What is surprising (and seldom highlighted) is that when it comes to sensing motion, we cannot back-calculate in the same kind of way as we can to correct for the delay in observation of the sun. Einstein chose to resolve the problem by treating perception as distorted and inventing new fundamental properties in the arena of physics - in the description of space and time. Einstein instead redefined simultaneity by using the instants in time we detect the event. The mathematical difference spawns different philosophical stances, which in turn percolate to the understanding of our physical picture of reality. About the Author

28 of the best pieces of advice about life you'll ever read Have the courage to live a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you. Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” Don’t make decisions when you’re angry. “Never argue with a stupid person, they’ll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.” Only pack what you can carry yourself. Remember you’ll always regret what you didn’t do rather than what you did. “You’d worry less about what people think about you if you knew how seldom they do.” If you blame it on someone else, don’t expect it to get better. “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, but there will always be someone who hates peaches.” If the grass is greener on the other side, there’s probably more manure there. Don’t give up what you want most for what you want now. With regards to the opposite sex: If you look hungry, you’ll starve.
