The Mysterious Poet: One of the most mysterious poets of all time, lived in Romania (1850-1889). His name was MIHAI EMINESCU and it was a real challenge for many generations of students to comprehend to its real dimension his work. His poems of an undoubted beautifulness are followed by deep and extremely sophisticated messages, which can be understood only by initiates. His knowledge about the Universe and its mysteries are so advanced for the time he lived in, that is puzzling even for the most liberal scientists. His poems not only anticipate Einstein’s relativity theory but also talk about lack of time and space, wormholes, energy, as being the information that creates matter, and many other topics difficult to understand even today. Nobody can explain how this poet foresees all this knowledge, and the verses behind it are absolutely marvelous.
