Last night was a scary night and it was not Halloween. It was stormy dark night. The wind was strong. The lightnings were too bright. The thunders were too loud. It was a scary night. Something told me it was going to be a strange night. I don't remember at what time I fell asleep, but I do remember I had this dream with Albert Einstein himself--The Albert Einstein.
He was standing there, tired-looking, in front of a blackboard with a white chalk in his hand which he held nervously. I was sitting in one of the last rows of the classroom. He looked straight at me and with a heavy-deep voice said:
Einstein: You, with the white shirt and glasses, what is your name?
Me: Who? Me?, are you talking to me, Professor?
Einstein: Yes, I'm talking to you. Do you hear me back there?
Me: Yes sssir, I can hear you clearly. My name is... is... is... Epiac.
Einstein: Epiac? What an ackward name. Do you understand what I mean by relativity?
Me: Well Professor, I can't say that I do, but I'm working on it.
Einstein: Why are you here? What is it you want for your future?
Me: If I say it Professor, will you help me? You have the brightest mind of any man alive. That's what everybody says around here in campus.
Einstein: That depends. If my bright mind, as you say, can think of something, I could help you. Maybe. It all depends. What's your petition, young man?
Me: I have this blog in the Internet, Professor. The name is Epiac's Place and I want to attract as many visitors to my site as I can. I know this is not exactly relativity, but if you say "Epiac is equal to success", people will believe you, and a lot of them will visit my site. (I felt so stupid after saying that, but it was my golden opportunity. It was my fifteen minutes of fame.)
Einstein: Mmmm. I'll think about it. Epiac's Place? Internet? Blog? Such nonsense.
Einstein turned around and continued with his class and I continued with my sleep while the wind pounded the trees outside the house. When I woke up this morning, the first thing that came to my mind was that peculiar dream with none other than Albert Einstein. "I must be loosing my senses", I said, as I walked towards my computer to see my blog's statistics. After booting the system, and clicking my blog's URL address, I couldn't believe my eyes. In front of me was this unbelievable black and white image. This is what I saw, shining brightly in my computer screen:
Nah! It was only a dream that I made up to introduce you to this Web page where you can compose messages written by Albert Einstein. I thought it was pretty neat. You too can create your own theory of relativity on this site, which allows you to insert your own text on the blackboard in this dinamic picture of Albert Einstein.
Would you like to share with us your future dreams with Albert Einstein? (Grin)
