I was motivated to write this thought while writing my review on Marshall MacLuhan's masterpiece, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, while ruminating on his idea that I refer to as the "action and reaction". It feels as though there exists an analogy between Einstein's notion of relativity of simultaneity and MacLuhan's idea concept of "action and reaction" – this note attempts to explain that analogous relationship.

- Include Gif like this:
- How information from Einstein's concept is received relative to time
- How action and reaction occurs simultaneously
- How knowledge dissemination and uptake can change over time 
	- Some will be ready to use the knowledge 
	- Others will be slow to adapt
