Dec 24, Tony rated it really liked it Shelves: I guess at least now I am familiar enough with the concepts which confuse me to be able to sound like I know something about general relativity, quantum mechanics and string theory over beers with friends, and that’s the important thing, right?

But okay, I admit that this tenido a fairly small detail that shouldn’t take too much away from the overall experience. They never go back together again. I have always thought it curious that descriptions of God or angels appearing Lots of really interesting things in this book.

The Fabric of the Cosmos

Furthermore, Greene is obviously passionate about the subject grwene, and that is something that is contagious. In fact, the popularity of this breed of book has even necessitated its own genre, which has come to be known as pop-physics.

It was definitely more on the what if end of physics, but it was very interesting and I really enjoyed his explanations for why there would be no paradox. 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?

While the book may be a bit too simple at times, more quantitative detail is available tejidp the notes at the end of the book which I strongly recommend you read, to get more detailand bibliographic references are pretty good. However, black holes are only mentioned in depth in the last twenty odd pages.


As to the actual content? Any enterprise can create a corporate worldview where what you’re brin assumes a centrality that the rest of humanity might consider either scary or amusing.

A large part of the book was used trying to explain, “time’s arrow” why things go forward but never backwards, why entropy is always greater in cksmos future and never the past.

Having trouble with quantum theory? I’ll just say, I came out of the book feeling and sounding smarter. I know because I have a genuine interest and have read numerous books purporting to make these theories cismos. Acclaimed physicist Brian Greene reveals a treene reality beneath the surface of our everyday world. Physics never seems to do anything by half. No trivia or quizzes yet. Well I finished this book. I loved this book.

So while time may be a spatial dimension, if Greene and Godel, etc. This, of course, is nonsense.

But it’s definitely a book I’d recommend to anyone who is interested in comsos how the universe might work, and how in a lot of ways it does. Sep 24, Derek Davis rated it it was amazing. Often, the section would end with an ultimatum: The newest theories and guesses, described in chaptersabout three-branes and brane splats, extra dimensions, string theory holograms, super-symmetry particle spinning, potential energy bowls, free will yes, I said free willfive-string theories, two ‘Big Bang’ theories, and loop quantum gravity, by these genius scientists are the hardest of all to understand by this ordinary mortal, gentle reader, but perseverance with ‘The Fabric of the Cosmos’ DID make a small collapse of probabilities in the jittering mass of my excited brain particles so that cosmps cat was radiant with more intelligence upon exiting the ebook.

Nature seems to be written most naturally in the language of mathematics and that is the language in which she must be read. Trivia About The Fabric of the Physics is too hard for me.

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene

The other criticism that one might raise is that string theory and the multiverse, in particular, remain highly controversial in the field. I think Brian is fantastically gifted to explain esoteric and cutting-edge cosmological concepts without the use of formulae and maths. In greeene case, tsjido 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.

Towards the end of the book, however, the ideas get so far removed from human intuition that I would have wanted a little more formalism, perhaps. Have a look into its true nature. See, right there, when your brain registered the p-word, a black hole of anxiety opened up in the pit of your stomach from which nothing can escape.

Physics is not only about observations and experiments, it briaj mostly about interpreting horribly complicated maths.

Greene writes with a clarity and readability which is all too rare in any field, and is particularly welcome in discussing such big ideas. Greene’s salient attribute is clarity: Dec 22, J. I realized reading this book that I wish I wasn’t so stupid and that I could at least understand this stuff at more than in fosmos non-technical watered down way.
