He then examines the outstanding mysteries of modern physics, the phenomena that lie outside the borders of our current understanding (dark energy, dark matter, the Big Bang, wave-particle duality, quantum tunneling, sta ...more

A magnificent intersection of so many beautiful areas of thought, perspective and humanity.

Einstein's Intuition is NOT an easy read, and frankly it shouldn't be. To be clear, Thad's thesis is grounded in the hard sciences of Physics, Mathematics and Cosmology, and a reader hoping to half heatedly interpret the underlying truth's being revealed, should be wary. To understand and absorb the true weight of Thad's revelations, I would not recommend it to a reader who does not have at least a basic

Pokud někoho z vás zajímá fyzika, tak tohle je skvělá knížka. Vždycky mi nevyhovovala kvantová fyzika a zajímala mě teorie všeho.

A tahle knížka nabízí racionální a hlavně deterministickou teorii. Vysvětluje gravitaci, kvanta, černé díry, big bang, temnou hmotu i temnou energii. A přitom poměrně pochopitelně.

Neříkám, že tahle kvantová teorie vakua je správná, ale aspoň nabízí přístupný vhled do toho, čím se fyzika aktuálně zabývá. Doporučuju!

Read before teaching a class on Modern Physics.

"Modern science is based on the principle: 'Give us one free miracle, and we'll explain the rest.' The one free miracle is the appearance of all the mass and energy in the universe and all the laws that govern it in a single instant from nothing. ~ Terence McKenna. "

Great concepts that make you rethink reality. It reminds me of reading "Emperor's New Mind," and "Dancing WuLi Masters," as a child. If you want to conceptualize reality in an entirely new way, pick up a copy of "Einstein's Intuition: Visualizing Nature in Eleven Dimensions" and set your mind free.

There is a great TEDx talk on YouTube with some subject matter from this book. You can search for "Thad Roberts - Visualizing Eleven Dimensions" on YouTube, or just use this URL: https://www.youtube.co

perfect balance of Science and Philosophy!! I felt it was maybe a bit long but in all honesty it needed to be to get all the points across.

Deep, heartfelt and ultimately profound.

Central to this book is the understanding of Nature in all its complexity and yet utter simplicity. The point being that there is actually an underlying and understandable fabric that all reality is resolved upon. This is a challenging idea at first, but throughout the book this idea is clarified and strengthened. This forces us outside a comfort zone we might have from current physics, but the rewards of that are multitude.

The book shows us that the simpl

Roberts is a theoretical physicist for the 21st century. He makes physics exciting with a questioning mind and bold imagination. This work, partially completed while the author was in prison for somewhat infamously stealing a moon rock, is as rebellious as it is conceptual. What's more important, it raises challenging questions which are worthy of deep consideration.

I'd recommend a foundational knowledge of Steven Hawking and Brian Greene before reading this work. The work of Carl Sagan and Neil
