Here’s another one, God:

“The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking…the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.” ~ Albert Einstein

You have to take it apart first, child.

Okay. The first part is “The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking…”

Definition of atom, please.

Okay. I like this definition: “Energy. This component as the source of nuclear energy.”

The key word there is “nuclear”. What comes to mind when you come across the word atom and nuclear?

Hiroshima. Wiki says that “the atomic bombings of the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II in August 1945 were the two bombings which were the first and remain the only use of nuclear weapons in warfare.”

What else does Wiki say?

Well. Reading further, this shouted at me,”A study of the long-term psychological effects of the bombings on the survivors found that even 17–20 years after the bombings had occurred survivors showed a higher prevalence of anxiety and somatization symptoms.” Somatization means “to convert (anxiety) into physical symptoms.”

Alright. Now, how has this changed everything except for humanity’s way of thinking?

Um…The Law of Retraction?

Yes. You’re not very clear, so I shall explain it. The bombing was a weapon used to try to end a war. It succeeded in doing that but it had dire consequences. Many, many innocent lives were lost and the devastation was deep. I say deep because anything that has a profound effect on humanity, whether it works or does not work shall not be easily forgotten. The atomic bomb has changed everything in the way the world fights a war, meaning it will no longer be used because of the consequences and the devastation it causes, but the world will still continue with fighting wars but with different weapons. A weapon is a weapon. Whether it is a baseball bat or an atomic bomb. The atomic bomb has changed how the world fights wars but it has not changed your way of thinking. You are still fighting. Now, the next part of that quote is “the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind.” What is the heart of mankind?

Its soul?

Soul. A four-letter word that explains the problems as well as the solution to the problems in your world. What is the next part of that quote?

This is the weird part. It’s “If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.”

What does the author wish he had known?

That the solution to change mankind’s way of thinking is to change it from the soul.

Yes! If the author had known this why did he wish to become a watchmaker?

I don’t know!

You do. I have already put the thought in your head.

Watch. Time. Albert Einstein wished he had more time? As in time to live? Oh dear God.

What’s wrong, child?

Albert Einstein didn’t know about infinite lifetimes when he was alive, did he?

No.

So if he had known that the solution to the problems in the world was to change mankind’s way of thinking about its soul he would have…he would have…I have no idea what he would have.

Precisely.
