Has so much human, and even divine, wisdom ever been expressed so compactly and simply in all of human history as Albert Einstein's beautiful equation E=MC2?

The universe not only runs on energy, it IS nothing but energy. Physically, it's energy that "makes the world go 'round." Expressed spiritually, it's the infinite energy of love that makes the world go 'round.

With an apology to Einstein, we could put his equation even more accurately this way: E/L=MC2, where "L" stands for love.

A grain of sand, a daisy, a deerfly, a human infant, contain and express the energy, i.e. the love, no human mind—even Einstein's—could even fathom.
