It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Rereading Anton Schindler's Life of Beethoven

It's available on Gutenberg.org with addenda, provided by Ignaz Moscheles AFAIK.

Apparently, the metronome was not perfected until late in Beethoven's life. And before that, one metronome could differ from another by a significant margin. I think it's Moscheles who advises performers to disregard the metronome indications, and play as the spirit dictates.
