Bertrand Russell
Principles ABC der Relativitätstheorie (German) II 95f
Principle of cosmic laziness / Relativity Theory / Russell: bodies move on geodesics - i.e. on the tracks that make the time between the stations as long as possible - i.e. the total distance is the maximum. - Otherwise the time measured on its own clock, would be shorter. - If light speed traveler had made a detour, he would have arrived earlier. - E.g.g the earth chooses an orbit around the sun, which makes the time of each path part longer according to a clock on the earth than the time measured by clocks that move on a different path. - Gravitation / Einstein: - non-Euclidean space: here the geodesics have undulating form - the paths lead around the outside - law of gravitation: every body chooses the easiest path.
