9. Albert Einstein (Scientist/Physicist) As we keep with the classical celebrities, then there is Albert Einstein (1879-1955) who was a famous physicist in the 19th century. He was renowned for his theories and discoveries made about space, the Big Bang and Quantum Physics. His Theory of Relativity was extremely influential to the philosophy of modern Science. Albert Einstein also studied hypnotherapy. He believed that in order for the mind to work efficiently, then it needed to rest through meditation. It is recorded that every afternoon he would self-hypnotize himself into a trance-like state. This would inspire thoughts and ideas, such as the Theory of Relatively. It is highly likely that this groundbreaking idea came to him during self-hypnosis.
