The Hand Prints of

Dr. Albert Einstein


The name Albert Einstein is synonymous with taking a step in another direction.  When viewing the hand prints of Dr. Einstein, we should look at them from a different perspective.  In this view, I shall focus on the element of chance rather than replication in recording of the dermal ridge arrangements. 


It is understood that when taking impressions, it is not possible to achieve two or more identical copies of the  dermal ridge configurations.  This is due to the amount of ink applied to the hand and the constraining force used to reproduce the ridge formations on paper; notwithstanding, all impressions taken from the hand will display differences in contour and contrast with regard to the ridges and furrows.


We do not know for certain the number of times impressions had been taken from the hands of Dr. Einstein.  If there are additional documents available we could examine one specimen next to the other.  Nor can we say that every record taken would display the same chance phenomenon of abstract appearance.   What we do have is this copy and something can be said about the record in hand.


The impressions of Dr. Einstein encompass images when viewed in the abstract perspective.  I have noted subtle images of persons that appear on the digits and palms.  A look from a different position provides the topographic view of a landform. 


A particular abstract observation of the impressions is perceptional and not limited to one individual.  Click here to view the handprints of Dr. Einstein and see them from another dimension.
