Abstract: In what way are Einstein's visions, and the accompanying research results of recent decades, relevant for us today? In essence, they prove without doubt that this world is of an entirely different nature than has so far been thought. Until today, a materialistic-positivistic paradigm characterised by 'Chance and Necessity' has been, and to a large degree still is, prevalent in this world. That paradigm means: Man evolved purely by chance from out of nowhere, and only survived out of necessity - the law of survival of the fittest. In contrast to these views, research has proved what Einstein already foresaw, that 'everything is nothing', i.e. matter does not exist and everything there is, is mind or spirit. This, then, is the essence of our being, and Einstein has been proven correct. Research has further substantiated that time is an illusion and the basis of our reality is therefore timelessness. From these basic understandings, it follows that we are in every respect the creators of our own destiny and that in doing injustice to others, we harm only ourselves. All our foresight, and what we think and do in innovation, is therefore, in every respect and always, governed by this basic choice.
