A Lost Page of Notes on Einstein’s ‘Theory of Everything’ Has Turned Up in Jerusalem

By Brandon Specktor, Senior Writer for Live Science

A never-before-seen page of Albert Einstein’s handwritten notes and equations on the unified theory of physics has been discovered in an archive of Einstein manuscripts recently acquired by The Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

According to a statement from the university, the newfound page was part of an appendix that Einstein included with a scientific article on unified field theory — the long-sought theory that unites all the fundamental forces of nature into a single set of equations — which Einstein submitted to the Prussian Academy of Science in 1930.

Previously thought lost, the page of elegantly written notes has never been seen or studied since its original submission, according to the statement. [8 Ways You Can See Einstein’s Theory of Relativity in Real Life]

The long-lost note turned up in an archive of 110 manuscript pages that The Hebrew University recently acquired from a private collector in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Many of the new pages have never been displayed to the public before, including 84 pages of mathematical calculations written from 1944-48, plus a number of letters to Einstein’s friends and family.

In one letter, written to Einstein’s son Hans Albert in 1935, the physicist expresses his worries about rising Nazi sentiments across Europe. “I read with some apprehension that there is quite a movement in Switzerland, instigated by the German bandits,” Einstein wrote. “But I believe that even in Germany things are slowly starting to change. Let’s just hope we won’t have a Europe war first.”

Einstein was one of the founders of the university, which was established in 1918. Upon his death in 1955, he bequeathed his personal and scientific writings to the university archive, which today boasts more than 80,000 Einstein artifacts.

  1. To state it bluntly: Einstein never was a physicist. He also was a bad mathematician, ask Minkowsky, Hilbert and many others of his time. Von Neumann even loved to play German military music having his windows open, so Einstein would be offended. This man was a real genius and was therefore tightly protected from day one to his death.

    Einstein was a project, that devastated Physics as well as Mathematic from the 20th centrury unil now. The key word here is: Axiom. The constance of the velocity of light was his fundamental axiom. It’s long overdue to admit its falshood.

    Look at the foundations of the real numbers in mathematics, no one will really speak about this scientific fraud either, all will say “Mr. … said so” and then they use a totally fradulent Cauchy methad of intervalls to supposedly proove the completeness of the real numbers. Looking deeper into it shows it’s a total fraud but accepted still today. This is the foundaion of Analysis and algrabra! I also could speak about Newton’s many basic errors in fundamental things and more. All is accepted, never critisized or corrected. to this day.

    The “modern” science relies on serverly fraudulent Axioms all over the various faculties. This “method” doesn’t need a proof anymore or an experiment, because someone said so. Very convenient, but total bullshit nonetheless.

  2. But when will the page be published?
    Once spoke with an old professor at Mount Scopus (Hebrew U’s campus). Who claimed Albert One-Stone had endeavored to rid himself of his honorary title as president (Ehres-Rektor/רקטור) for “that bag of worms” or “snakepit(Sclangenrede”. Newer knew if he was just pulling my leg…
