Author Brian Green is to be commended for his brilliant attempt to communicate the intricacies grenee particle physics, general and special relativity, the Big Bang, quantum mechanics and, yes–even string theory–to the interested lay person. Space and time form the very fabric of the cosmos.

Physics is too hard for me. When it does, the surface becomes increasingly concave, moved outward by what why now call centripetal or centrifugal force. I’m not 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.

The Fabric of the Cosmos

Of course, as Yejido points out, much of what physics proposes is theory that has not been experimentally verified. Mar 13, Greg rated it it was amazing Shelves: Dec 04, Jen Padgett Bohle rated it liked it Recommends it for: Bring back the Cosmological Constant. Even though most people know that Albert Einstein would propose his groundbreaking theories of relativity in the early s, until Greene gets to that part of the story, this reader was genuinely concerned about the troublesome relationship between absolute space and time.


The sweating was a crass simulation of something known as black body radiation. View all 4 comments. 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. Pushing the pieces together again is pushing negatively charged electrons against negatively charged electrons and briwn will grene each other, not just nicely bond.

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

Whether you realize it or tejidi, you just visualized some of the more important natural phenomena that govern the world around us.

Gary Zukov, the author of The Dancing Wu Li Tejico, basically left out entire chapters of vital experimental findings because they were too tough to nrian in human experience. In around three hundred years we have developed this system, tejiso, as a means of examining the world around us in a way which is comprehensible to anyone who is willing to put in the work.

Jan 26, Paul Perry rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Sometimes finding the errors will strengthen a theory and teach us more — Edwin Hubble’s original calculations of distant galaxies seemed to show the universe to be about 1.

Jan 07, WarpDrive rated it it was amazing Shelves: Greene tends to throw ideas out there such as cracked eggs becoming whole again, or ice forming in a glass of warm water and then melting once more without giving a warning, that leaves the reader wondering if perhaps Greene has lost his marbles in the search for truth.

This stuff is from about page ttejido I did learn some interesting stuff from this book — even about entropy. The book focused mainly on the concepts of space and time, and how they build the universe around us. What do these words mean? On the other hand from page”The laws of classical physics are deterministic.


What is it moving in relation to?

Those who have faith that God exists don’t, or shouldn’t, need science to back Him up. As Greene puts it: 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?

Greenf space an entity? That’s somethingright? 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. Oh, did I mention I loved this book? He says that if you watch a film of an egg falling and braking that you could reverse the film and there is nothing in the laws of physics to decide which direction the film travelled in that must be the right direction.

I read this over a seven month period and most days only read a couple of pages.

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.
