The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory
Agile Kindergarten's review
Feb 05, 2013
What I find so intriguing about physics is the reflection of our social systems in those natural laws. For example, Newtonian physics indicates a straight line between points A and B at a predictable rate of speed as an obvious and rational solution. Einstein's relativity laws add the element of perspective and alters our definition of time. Quantum theory makes it clear that getting from point A to B is, on some level, anything but a straight line. A fun book for those of us who are mathematically and philosophically inclined.
