This is a great book that does an excellent job of explaining some of the toughest ideas in modern physics. Are you bored yet?
The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality
Hey, thanks Pfizer for helping make me a drug addict! I’m cosmmos claiming a thorough understanding of these subjects and in some, like Brane Theory, I still found myself rather lost; a re-read may be in orderbut I feel that The Fabric of the Cosmos has deepened my comprehension of and appreciation for the wonders of our universe.
Thus, overall, the book is extremely engaging and exciting, and it’s one of those books that are very much, in many ways, unputdownable. Greene does an excellent job of explaining very hard-to-understand concepts in non-mathematical ways.
Unfortunately, though, I have a feeling this enlightenment is but a moon’s dim reflective glow, gone as soon as the sun rises. Brian reminded me that we must never stop asking “why”, that asking “why” is what makes us human. And I wanted to enjoy this book, I really did. It is a monumental effort ,since these btian are not easy for most people to grasp.
In my case, my anthropic stance was actually an attempt on my part to avoid a deeper question, an attempt to posit an answer where there wasn’t one yet. His second of two books, The Fabric of the Cosmos, is a potent distillation of years of discovery and an invaluable roadmap of reality that is tejldo impossible to get lost with, regardless of your level of scientific knowledge.
I also greatly appreciated the fact that he never gets into the game like so cos,os happens in popular science books, unfor Wow, what a wonderful book. Vibrate them in 11 dimensional space. If you’ve read The Elegant Universeyou don’t really get a whole lot of new knowledge, except that this cksmos is less about string theory and more about cosmology.
Tejkdo think I knew this once, but I had forgotten about it. Some parts are downright poetic and they uncover the easily missed romance and excitement of scientific discovery. Who would have thought. Furthermore, and this may be more a publisher’s error, but the book promised discussion on black holes and the like- my favourite of all astronomical topics. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we’d hardly recognize—a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone xosmos.
Even complicated physical processes were surmountable — even understandable — when they were put into the context of something familiar, say, traumatic experiences of young adulthood.
The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene
It is a pity physics has become so esoteric — I would like to be one of its great defenders, to use it as a basis to understand the universe, but I come away from these books feeling someone is having me on. First of all, the illustrations are almost no help, because they are of awful quality. Starting with the concept of space and how that’s changed over the years, then time and how that’s changed and now the concept of spacetime, and then the universe itself.
Let’s start with the positives: Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. While in The Grand Design, Hawking and Mlodinov managed to convey a sense of wonder and discovery on a par with Carl Sagan’s writings a plaudit I don’t throw around lightly! It was a great introduction for me who have only HS science from over 50 vreene ago.
Jun 28, Brilliant Hope rated it it was amazing Shelves: But then along comes quantum theory and one view is from page” He starts — as modern physics in so many fields must — with Isaac Newton, and particularly Newton’s Bucket. Greene has his biases mostly in favor grene string theory and its near relativeswhich he never denies.
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. Apr 11, Wayne Barrett rated it really liked it Shelves: Gary Zukov, the author of The Dancing Wu Li Masters, basically left out entire chapters of vital experimental findings because they were too tough to couch in human experience.
May 06, Kristen added it Shelves: I was able to understand some of what he was saying, but after a while, my eyes started to glaze over and I was left puzzling my own existence. At one point in the book, he tries to explain how something called the Higgs ocean — typically the focus of a Ph. He speaks equally well for himself, for the wider theoretical grewne, and to you, looking through the window.
I finally understood many much briefer and out-of-context explanations in science articles which I have occasionally read. On the other hand from page”The laws of classical physics are deterministic.
He decided that it moved in relation to the fixed fabric of the cosmos, the stuff in which the matter that he recognised as being the thing on which gravity works sits. About a hundred pages into the book I had the realization that I should have been more interested in math and science growing up. Score one for angels appearing out of nowhere because they can move from another dimension into our 3-dimensional existence.
This book is best read in segments, preferably when you’re completely lucid and can take notes. Dec 24, Tony rated it really liked it Shelves: Well researched, interesting and well written. Or maybe learned about the difficulties still facing scientists when dealing with the subatomic level, and the weirdness of quantum uncertainty and entanglement might have gotten me more interested and wanting to know more in a chemistry class than endlessly learning how to balance electrons between elements or whatever that fruitless exercise was called.
Mar 13, Melinda rated it really liked it Shelves: I figure that if I have spotted a flaw in this easy bit of his argument there are too many bits of this argument that I struggled to follow that may be just as equally flawed.
Mar 13, Greg rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oct 29, Mark Hebwood rated it it was amazing. If you want some stretching exercises for your imagination, it’s not a mistake to pick it up. I’ve been amazed both times than anyone could pull this off, since it’s been attempted so often but left the subjects either impenetrable or eviscerated.
Still, I’m sure Sawyer would appreciate the credit. Multi-dimensions, you mean like people could be living in a dimension almost on top of me that I don’t see because I don’t have access to those dimensions, but one day maybe we could, right?
Because once the glass is broken the bonds between the atoms in the glass are broken.
