The Theory of Relativity of Social ConstructsIn 1905, Albert Einstein revolutionized our understanding of space and time when he published his "Special Theory of Relativity" with it's well known axiom E=mc2. While few truly have a deep understanding of the meaning of it, most people know the formula, and a fairly decent number have a basic understanding of what the formula means. Simply put, E is energy, m is mass, and c2 is the speed of light squared. And the entire formula can, in one way, be described as saying "Energy cannot be created or destoryed, merely changed in form".More Like This
One might wonder what any of this has to do with Social Constructs... well, it all arises from a thought I had. Just like the E (energy) in Einstein's equation, P (for Power ie: political or governmental power) cannot be created or destroyed, merely changed in form or redistributed.
Taking that as true, one could try to determine some form of equation to desribe this... I like to think of it so: P=G$ or to put it in easier to understand terms...

Black – true black – is the absence of light. Darkness is defined by what it is not, by the lack of something else. When we say a black hole, we truly mean that; black. Blacker than black. An absence of not only light, but of time, distance, anything.
The night was scary when I was little. I hated the dark, but couldn’t bear to sleep so long as the light was on, any light, burning on the other side of my eyelids. I used to have nightmares about dark things in dark corners, shadowy figures with shadowy fingers trailing along my spine. I always woke up cold and fumbling frantically for the lamp, but the aura of light just made the shadows deeper and I turned it off quickly.
Black holes are dead stars. Graves. Tombs that bury light, bury it so deep, swallow entire suns, planets, galaxies. Dead stars take all the light with them like rich men spending fortunes on alabaster monuments and marble headstones.
There are four unmarked graves
