One of my buddys was rumoring that einstein did alot of mushrooms and/or acid, and this is one of the reasons (along with his high iq) that he was so smart. Im not so sure bout this can anyone confirm or deny this?

LSD was not invented then. Sounds like a totally unsubstantiated rumor to me.

That was a cool pic picking4peace. Einstein was on the more logical road toward the same thing that hallucinogens provide the mind.
Even tobacco smoke has harmine in it, and I bet he had smoked some pot and opium in his day. Ive never heard this though. He must have been curious

He did say imagination is more important than intelligence. That sounds pretty far out to me.

Sorry I don't think he did drugs, he just thought so far out there it got him high. Have you ever read some of his theories based on inductive reasoning? Interesting thought process.

Hahha, I've always said that Einstein says a bunch of things that a huge stoner might say; the only reason anyone takes him seriously is because he was Einstein.

Case in point: "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

If anyone else said that, you'd be like, GET A JOB YOU DAMN HIPPIE
(yeah I know, not really, but you know what I mean)

But Einstein said it so everyone strokes their chin and goes "Aaaaahhh, yes"

It wouldn't surprise me if Einstein did drugs, but I tend to think that he didn't. I think he was just so brilliant he was able to comprehend the universe in such a fantastic way that it seems like crazy drug-induced fantasy to us. Of course, the difference is, his crazy theories ended up being correct (as far as we can tell). Any man who can completely fly in the face of 400 years worth of science and get away with it is a genius.

So who knows, if you can quantify the truths you discover while tripping, you could be the next Einstein. Clearly the spirit is there, you just need to produce the mathematics to back it up.

Einstein got all of his ideas from his wife. It has been proven that he stole most of his "IDEAS" from her.

... and i have proof that in fact he stole pretty much all his remaining "IDEAS" from the patent office where he worked as a clerk during the time he published his most important work on relativity.  to think of all the poor saps who tried to trademark the speed of light as a constant and were personally rejected by sneaky albert :smile:

but here's another story which is actually not bullshit, kary mullis who got the nobel prize for inventing PCR (polymerase chain reaction) without which no genetic research as we know today would be possible, declared that he would've never come up with that had he not tripped on lsd on a regular basis.  incidentally, his autobiography, dancing naked in the mind field is an awesome book.

I tottaly agree about him working in the patent office. I find it very ironic that most of the great inventions of out time have come from people working at the patent.
