100 years of general relativity

Whenever I set out to describe something I always end up coming across words that are familiar to me. But until I understand what these words mean they are nothing more than labels on boxes. Each box reveals another box. I keep opening boxes until I reach a limit where the effort to proceed exceeds my capacity (and willingness) to learn. I look at the many boxes left unopened. And hope that what I understand to be true represents a fair description of a reality that exists.
