While Newton had held that an object preserved the same properties whether at rest or in motion, Einstein theorized that as an object approached the speed of light, its mass increased and its motion slowed (E=MC^2). He believed that the universe was shapeless and changed consistently. 2. Sigmund Freud believed that the psyche consisted of three parts: the id, ego, and superego. The id was the seat of human instincts and the source of all physical desires, the ego the manager that functioned to adapt the needs of the id to the real world, the superego was the moral monitor of “conscience” that operates according toe the principles inculcated by parents, teachers, and social authorities. He also analysised dreams-psychoanalysis. 3. The major wars and revolutions of the 20 th century were WWI+WWII and the Russian Revolution. Lenin, Hitler, and Stalin were the key leaders during this time.
