The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene
I won’t go further into the details read the book! Bring back the Ether, I say. As Greene puts it: Greene uses lots of pop cultural referenced examples to illustr I finally finished Brian Greene’s Fabric of the Cosmos and I am more confused than ever about string theory, M-theory and the nature of spacetime.
Unfortunately, some concepts will be beyond analogy and word craft and require at least a cursory digression of technicalities. And as your eyes scanned ahead for those dreaded half-English, half-Greek words followed by an equal sign, the probability of you reading on fast approached zero.
After all, trying to understand quantum physics is something my brain just isn’t wired to do. Fortunately, Brian Greene leaves the math for the ‘Notes’ section in the back of this book while describing through analogies and simple-as-possible, and logical, well-written historical vignettes about the key physics discoveries by famous physicists which illuminate the nature of space and time.
Two unique aspects of this book I haven’t found elsewhere are 1 its focus on space and time and 2 its enthusiasm. I’ll just say, I came out of the book feeling and sounding smarter. Anyway, back to Parmenides, I don’t buy the idea that his role was only as foil, or goad to the materialists to make their theories more logically consistent.
The equations are indifferent to the supposed freedom of human will. While I cannot therefore give an expert opinion about it’s accuracy, it was bruan and I feel like I understand the world a lot more now.
To achieve the status of acceptance of say, General Relativity or Evolution by Natural Selection, a theory has to be tested — that is, it has to survive again and again and again the onslaught of people systematically trying to prove greeen wrong. Books by Brian Greene.
Unfortunately, Greene is unable to translate all his ideas into legible text. Fabric is such a good read because Greene buttresses the same savvy teaching techniques with an eloquent style of storytelling. At one point in the book, he tries to explain how something called the Higgs ocean — typically the focus of a Ph.
Well researched, interesting and well written. What do these words mean? Want to Read saving…. See all 4 questions about The Fabric of the Cosmos…. He does, for the most part. And for the wonders of the human mind to work out these things.
Oct 29, Mark Hebwood rated it it was amazing.
grdene Sure, Brian Greene might understand physics but can he roll a joint while driving his car with his knee? I wish I could say ‘The Fabric of the Cosmos’ is an easy read which makes clear a subject that only geniuses understand normally about what classic physics and quantum mechanics have to do with understanding the mysteries of cosmology, particularly the theories regarding what the universe is, how it began, what made it function the way it does and why there seems to be an arrow of Time.
Score one for angels appearing out of nowhere because they can move from another dimension tejidl our 3-dimensional existence. Christians believe that people can choose to do good or do evil and are therefore responsible for the consequences. This book is best read in segments, preferably when you’re completely lucid and can take notes.
My problem is exacerbated by the fact that it seems that every time there is a problem in Physics we are having trouble solving we just make up something invisible to solve it. I understand that Inflationary Theory is not merely a tweak of Big Bang theory to enable it to fit observed facts, but a whole new way of looking at the growth of the universe that actually explains much more about the brixn physics.
The Fabric of the Cosmos
About a hundred pages into the book I had the realization that I should have been more interested in math and science growing up. What an incredible journey this was. Interweaving provocative theories, experiments, and stories with crystal-clear explanations and imaginative metaphors like those that defined the groundbreaking and highly acclaimed series “The Elegant Universe,” tejjido Fabric of the Cosmos” aims to be the most compelling, visual, and comprehensive picture of modern physics ever seen on television.
But he uses a very familiar and somewhat playful example to illustrate the point.
