Albert Einstein's career spans the end of the imperial era and the nascent tidal wave of dictatorial democracies. His accomplishments spearheaded if not in fact at least in publicity, an enormous change in the absolutism of time, space and reality of Newton. It was Einstein's relativity that captured the minds of the media, society and the world creating a new world of amorphous thought. Gone were the unchanging truths of the past in science, government and religion. Now a new relativistic period was heralded that changed the world for a hundred years. It is important in discussing the achievements of Dr. Einstein to specify that his most important contribution to physics for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize was not E=mc2 nor was it Special or General Relativity. Instead, he received the distinction for his work on light quantization as described in one of his 1905 papers.
