I’m looking forward to reading his still more recent work. Instead of jumping over here and over there, he leads the reader in a very precise well, as precise as you can get without serious mathematics and logical manner which seems to be satisfying both to the layman and to the expert.

A point, if you would. With all those bran aside, the book is enjoyable and engaging. Tejdio – this was on offer as well!

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

When it does, the surface becomes increasingly concave, moved outward by what why now call centripetal or centrifugal force. Bertrand Russell made a hash of explaining relativity with a raft of confounding, muddying analogies. Aug 21, Mel rated it it was amazing Shelves: The author, being a foremost scientist directly involved in the most advanced research efforts in areas such as String Theory, does have his own preferences and biases all honestly acknowledged by him, and also they do not impact the overall objectivity and impartiality of his book.

Your underarms began to radiate heat as your mind conjured memories of ggeene high school laboratories. The field appears to be so fast-moving that some of his statements in the later chapters have already been overtaken by reality, but there is a special charm in ggreene Brian suggest that the LIGO experiment may demonstrate the existence of gravitational waves in decades to come when you know that this has already happened, much sooner than tejid thought.

Sometimes the fault will cause the foundations of the theory to crumble, and it will be discarded; it has still served a purpose, to show tejidp promising such an approach is.

My only criticism is greeje Greene can’t figure out who his audience is: Some parts are downright poetic and they uncover the easily missed romance and excitement of scientific discovery. 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? It all works out beautifully! Physics is not only about observations and experiments, it is mostly about interpreting horribly complicated maths.


Throughout the text, he would broach a huge topic by putting it coemos historical context and discussing its relevance in the big physics picture. I never really understood the big bang, that the universe was expanding, not that things were just getting flung further out into space.

It is not a matter of things clsmos back together at the right speed that is the issue. That is not to say that I assume the author is more knowledgeable than me simply because he has more letters after his name, but because he grounds his claims with background and the weight of evidence that is needed for a scientific hypothesis to become a generally accepted theory.

Even cosmic inflation seems to have inflated the universe to a ridiculous extent in the first nanosecond of the universe. I understood that only by asking “why” were physicists able to develop a theory that explains the finetuning, and go beyond the Big Bang as the creation theory of the universe.

If you want some stretching exercises for your imagination, it’s not a mistake to pick it up. 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. Still, I’m sure Sawyer would appreciate the credit.

Glancing at the reviews for Brian Greene’s overview of how we view the stuff of which our universe is made, it seems that some people base their rating and opinion on how much they agree with the science, or how credible they find it.

Greene keeps returning to the bucket rejido its implications throughout the book, to superb explanatory effect. 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 brlan 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 this cat was radiant with more intelligence upon exiting the ebook.

Fabric is such a good read because Greene buttresses the same savvy teaching techniques with an eloquent style of storytelling. Apr 11, Wayne Barrett rated it really liked it Shelves: Being utterly unscientific I still believe toasters toast toast by invoking thrice the name of said bread and summoning forth a kind of crisping deityI pounce on shit for the lay reader.

Seeing as Sawyer wrote his novel first back in and The Fabric of the Cosmos was written inI can only suspect that Greene was, er, inspired if you will to use it. It’s not that he’s a bad writer it’s just that I’m not that smart, but I suppose we all have own unique talents, right? Acclaimed physicist Brian Greene reveals a mind-boggling reality beneath the btian of our everyday world. Physics never seems to do anything by half. Even with half a B. It is, like every successful theory, one that accurately describes the way our universe works, with the limits of perception and understanding we have, which is geeene theories are modified or discarded when new information comes along.


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

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. And for the wonders of the human mind to work out these things.

It was a great introduction for me who have only HS science from over 50 years ago. I just made a slight at pop-science and that is hypocritical of me, it’s really the I like to talk shit about science sometimes. Jul 24, DJ rated it really liked it Shelves: Dec 04, Jen Padgett Bohle rated it liked it Recommends it for: Sometimes it’s just to push people’s buttons and other times it’s because of the pop side of science is ridiculous you know like the studies that get quoted on your web-browsers start-up page, which may even be contradicted a few days from now by some other article, or all those fucking pharmaceutical ad’s on TV.

It is a fantastic introductory book to the realm of contemporary physics – of course, if you are interested in more quantitative treatments of such subjects, then this is probably not the book for you – although I must say that everybody with an interest in science should really take the time to read this masterpiece.

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.

I have always thought it curious that descriptions of God or angels appearing to people seem to be accompanied by bright light and that the supernatural being just appears out of nowhere.

Another problem with the book has been pointed out in this review as well, https:
