    Inhaltsangabe

    Max Tegmark leads us on an astonishing journey through past, present and future, and through the physics, astronomy, and mathematics that are the foundation of his work, most particularly his hypothesis that our physical reality is a mathematical structure and his theory of the ultimate multiverse. In a dazzling combination of both popular and groundbreaking science, he not only helps us grasp his often mind-boggling theories, but he also shares with us some of the often surprising triumphs and disappointments that have shaped his life as a scientist. Fascinating from first to last - this is a book that has already prompted the attention and admiration of some of the most prominent scientists and mathematicians. 

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “Tegmark offers a fascinating exploration of multiverse theories, each one offering new ways to explain ‘quantum weirdness’ and other mysteries that have plagued physicists, culminating in the idea that our physical world is ‘a giant mathematical object’ shaped by geometry and symmetry. Tegmark’s writing is lucid, enthusiastic, and outright entertaining, a thoroughly accessible discussion leavened with anecdotes and the pure joy of a scientist at work.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

    “Lively and lucid, the narrative invites general readers into debates over computer models for brain function, over scientific explanations of consciousness, and over prospects for finding advanced life in other galaxies. Though he reflects soberly on the perils of nuclear war and of hostile artificial intelligence, Tegmark concludes with a bracingly upbeat call for scientifically minded activists who recognize a rare opportunity to make our special planet a force for cosmic progress. An exhilarating adventure for bold readers.” (Bryce Cristensen, Booklist, starred review)

    “Our Mathematical Universe boldly confronts one of the deepest questions at the fertile interface of physics and philosophy: why is mathematics so spectacularly successful at describing the cosmos? Through lively writing and wonderfully accessible explanations, Max Tegmark—one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists—guides the reader to a possible answer, and reveals how, if it’s right, our understanding of reality itself would be radically altered.” (Brian Greene, physicist, author of The Elegant Universe and The Hidden Reality)

    I don´t believe it

    Tegmark has the idea, that everything in the Universe is mathematics, there there is nothing else than mathematics. I don´t know what he talks about even after this book. What should that be, an Mathematical Universe? formulas on a Computer? but the Computer also must be mathematics, so...idk. Enjoyed listening to it, anyways.

    Down the rabbit hole, into wonderland

    This book will give you not one new perspective but infinitely many. And if, afterwards, you still find physics boring, at least you can be sure it's you.

    exciting, fascinating and very unsettling

    Probably one of the most interesting "reads" about the universe and reality I've had in a long time. Highly recommended. The speaker (Rob Shapiro) ist also very good as he pauses and emphasizes appropriately which requires you to understand the topic which is in this case not always super easy but makes the topic even more fantastic.

    Not for anyone

    Get the book, it gets complicated if you cant reread parts of it. Also if you arent interested in math you might have a problem getting trough the book. It certainly is fun if you are either bright or just very interested in the stuff. For me the last third of the book didnt make a single sense anymore, either I was the problem or the book shiftet its audience in the last part. Im going to take the blame here and give the book the benefit of the doubt.

    Must read

    For every science-interested individual. Brilliantly written and with a captivating hypnosis about the nature of the physical reality.

    Very enjoyable, personal for this sort of book

    Very good interesting and science based book but with a personal aspect giving you a great insight into Max as a person and Physicist. Shame more scientist don't open up personally more.
