I thought Einstein was only 26 when he put out that paper that impacted all of reality - or at least - relativity....

Regardless of age - without a sound method to investigate data sets - one can fall into biases so easily. It is our nature to be biased. It is a basic survival skill. It often flies in the face of the greater reality. Hmmm from physics to philosophy.... nah, its Friday.... time to break out the junk food and play board games instead.

Indeed Einstein published young, but he continued trying to unify his theories until his death in 1955. He even explored Kaluza's 4 dimensional space theories, but gave up when he realized he could not explain an unseen fourth spatial dimension to his colleagues in physics. Ironically those same ideas found their way into String theory decades later.

Re: age again, we know its harder to fool them youngins as much as adults with various mystery methods because they have not had years to form patterns and biases... they even see pattens different (the famous dolphins vs naked bodies illusion)... sometimes its them little ones who can yell "Da empera has no clothes!"

Just saying as much as one can argue years of researching can be required to find a pattern - also those years can accidentally have some make a pattern to fit their needs on a subconscious level. Both can be true - that is why reality is so wild to we limited in finite abilities humans.... yet the quest must continue with constant rigour and reflection.

(Yeah, Friday junk food binge over - time for the Kale.)
