I have a general understanding of the theory of relativity in its most classical form (Newtonian). Check-out this illustration with me and Yadier Molina from the St. Louis Cardinals, if you want a visual.
I can even grasp how Einstein’s time dilation can prove forward time travel (sorry Marty, but you can’t go back). Getting into spacetime continuum and how it relates to gravity hurts my brain a little but I’m easing into it.
But no worry, because today is about Kanye.
Someone once said to me after I complained about something, “Well, your biggest problem is only as big as your biggest problem.” (I’ve tried to find the author of that quote, but with no luck – dam you Quora).
In essence, this quote sums up what I’m coining as:
“the theory of problem relativity”.
Luckily, none of us have to be a physicist to understand its meaning, but if you are still unsure, let Kanye explain in the below illustration.
In essence, our problems are relative to our own personal perspective on life, but what I can’t grasp about this theory of problem relativity is whether mine or real or not. One could argue that Kanye’s are not real, but if his biggest problem is as big as his biggest problem, doesn’t that make his problem as real as mine?
Either they are both real or they are both non-existent. Argh, this is hurting my brain as much as spacetime continuum.
