When physicists began exploring the inner workings of the atom, they uncovered a world so weird that it overturned our very concept of reality. When you journey into the quantum universe you enter a world ruled by chance. Commonsense notions of space, time and causality must be left behind as the realm of solid matter dissolves away into vibrating patterns of ghostly energy; even spacetime itself is revealed as an ephemeral froth of wormholes and tunnels. Most revolutionary of all is the way in which quantum physics interweaves mind and matter in a subtle and holistic manner. It is here that scientists make the most startling claim of all: that there exist myriads of alternative realities in parallel to our own. Are these "other worlds" just mathematical artefacts, or do they really exist?

Summary: Paul Davies explains the significance of the amazing quantum universe, where fact is stranger than any science fiction. He takes us into a world where commonsense notions of space, time, and causality must be left behind as the realm of solid matter dissolves into vibrating patterns of ghostly energy, and where mind and matter are interwoven in a subtle and holistic manner. An Australian physicist and author of GOD AND THE NEW PHYSICS, Davies writes for the lay reader in simple language. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0140138773
