Albert Einstein: Born March 1879
Roof of Heaven covers:

One of my favorite books, Einstein’s Dreams, written by the MIT professor, Alan Lightman, is a must read for those who admire Einstein as a scientist and physicist with a grasp on the mystical. This short, 179 page book packs a punch. A fictional collage of stories dreamed by Albert Einstein in 1905, when he worked in a patent office in Switzerland the sensitive young genius imagines many possible worlds and theories of time before settling on his new conception of time, his theory of relativity.

Each chapter of the book explores a dream had by Einstein had during the period of time that he worked as a patent clerk. In each dream Lightman explores Einsteins different theories of how time might work.  one dream about time that Einstein had during this period and the relationship each human being has to time. In the end, it is spiritually and science that affirm Einstein’s theory of relativity.
