It is a compelling narrative of the search for understanding that probes the boundaries of human experience. Each step of increasing tfjido knowledge important to cosmology is described in a logical procession of conclusions, facts and theories, chapter by chapter.

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

Greene is an insider, to different degrees, in the enterprises of mathematics, physics and bruan theory. What cosmso ride it was. Starting with a seemingly simple problem or I would think it’s simple, but it took a few hundred years and Einstein to adequately understand it, apparently not that I could figure it out about why the water in a bucket pushes up against the side of the bucket when you spin the bucket around really fast, Brian Cosmoa creates a narrative I’m using this in it’s normal manner, not in the science as greend way that I use it when I want to greene people off, this book is a history of science book in quite a few ways that shows how this bucket filled with some water paved the way for Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Uncertainty, the Big Bang, String Theory, M-Theory, Branes and other concepts that helped move forward theoretical understandings of the whole universe.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It all works out beautifully! If you hang a bucket of water on a rope and twist the rope, as the rope unwinds, spinning the bucket, at first the water remains stationary until the friction of the bucket’s movement makes the water begin to spin.

That said, I think brisn was unecessary to use popular culture the way he did. It made a nice change for me to read a book about a subject I know so little about. Acclaimed physicist Brian Greene reveals a mind-boggling reality beneath the surface of our everyday world. Have a look into its true nature. This feeling, this sensation that time is flowing, doesn’t require previous moments—previous frames—to be “sequentially illuminated.


Instead, when he refers to it again, he summarizes it quickly, as if reminding a friend walking with him down a forest path. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

The Fabric of the Cosmos

Cosmps 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 rejido which seems to be satisfying both to the layman and to the expert. It will be next up on my agenda. Jun 28, Brilliant Hope tejidp it it was amazing Shelves: I like to talk shit about science sometimes. Wow, what a wonderful book. Is space an entity?

Christians believe that people can choose to do good or do evil and are therefore responsible for the consequences. But sometime soon after my immediate annoyance at these kinds of meaningless games something clicked in me and I started to try to think through what Parmenides could mean by the whole universe being an unchanging, undivisible, timeless thing.

Return to Book Page. It’s too late now, and I’m too dumb in too many areas of knowledge but I should have been a theoretical physicist. Dec 04, Jen Padgett Bohle rated it liked it Recommends it for: Seeing as Sawyer wrote his novel first back in and The Fabric of the Cosmos was written in tejieo, I can only suspect that Greene was, er, inspired if you will to use it.

He starts — as modern physics in so many fields must — with Isaac Newton, and particularly Newton’s Bucket. Unfortunately, Greene is unable to translate all his ideas into legible text. It is not a matter of things coming back together at the right speed that is the issue. Some might find his poetic geeky gushes cheesy, but others like myself will spend the next several evenings lying outside on their lawns, staring at the stars, and just basking in the awesomeness of it all.

He’s funny and he describes this complicated shizz really well he likes to make Simpsons analogies.

Dec 12, David rated it liked it. Oh, did I mention I loved this book?

Even cosmic inflation seems to have inflated the universe to a ridiculous extent in the first nanosecond of the universe. Space and time form the very fabric of the teejido.

He’ll essentially write, “okay, I know this is far-fetched, gdeene trust me on this one: 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 almost impossible to get lost with, regardless of your level of scientific knowledge. It is amazing how he manages to convey potentially complex subjects, such as quantum mechanics and relativity, in a simple but at the same time rigorous manner.

This book is a very good intro to physics and discovering about the universe. They never go back together again. He acknowledges the complexity of problematic topics and painstakingly walks the reader through the material every time. Throughout the text, he uses objects we experience and protagonists we can visualize to illustrate his points.

I think inflationary cosmology is neat. View all 4 comments.

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

On one level Parmenides can be thought of as the logical foil to the pre-Socratic materialists, the voice that says your theory is nice but what about x? I don’t buy into the idea that was Parmenides only goal though. Frynman introduced some slapstick into the equations in cosms fine American tradition — but, as always, it takes an Irishman John Bell to put the final touches on the comedy and to make it truly surreal.

Vibrate them in 11 dimensional space. Science is a method that enables us to understand more and more about the world, to revel in the joy of knowing how the rainbow greeene formed as well as in its simple beauty. Oh, actually the underlying theme to the book is how do we understand the concepts of space and time, or spacetime, which is one of the problems of understanding why the water in the bucket does what it does when it is spun around. Apr 11, Wayne Barrett rated it really liked it Shelves: 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.

Even complicated physical processes were surmountable — even understandable — when they were put into the context of something familiar, say, traumatic experiences of young adulthood.
