9780140275414: The Fabric of Reality: The Science of Parallel Universes-- and Its Implications

Quantum physics, evolution, computation, and knowledge--these four main strands of scientific theory and philosophy have, until now remained incomplete explanations of the way the universe works. These strands may seem unrelated, yet in "The Fabric of Reality" Oxford scholar David Deutsch shows that they are so closely intertwined that we cannot properly understand any one of them without reference to the other three. Considered jointly, they reveal a unifed fabric of reality that is objective and comprehensible, and in which human actions and ideas play essential roles.

Book Description Penguin Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 390 pages. Dimensions: 7.9in. x 5.4in. x 1.0in.For David Deutsch, a young physicist of unusual originality, quantum theory contains our most fundamental knowledge of the physical world. Taken literally, it implies that there are many universes parallel to the one we see around us. This multiplicity of universes, according to Deutsch, turns out to be the key to achieving a new worldview, one which synthesizes the theories of evolution, computation, and knowledge with quantum physics. Considered jointly, these four strands of explanation reveal a unified fabric of reality that is both objective and comprehensible, the subject of this daring, challenging book. The Fabric of Reality explains and connects many topics at the leading edge of current research and thinking, such as quantum computers (which work by effectively collaborating with their counterparts in other universes), the physics of time travel, the comprehensibility of nature and the physical limits of virtual reality, the significance of human life, and the ultimate fate of the universe. Here, for scientist and layperson alike, for philosopher, science-fiction reader, biologist, and computer expert, is a startlingly complete and rational synthesis of disciplines, and a new, optimistic message about existence. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780140275414
