The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene

More on that later. After all, trying to understand quantum physics is something my brain just isn’t wired to do. I think that if I read this book two or three more times, I might actually become an educated person.

Greene has his biases mostly in favor of string theory and bfian near relativeswhich he never denies. But Brian explained that physicists abhor theories that rely on unknown qualities, on axiomatic pronouncements that accept something as a given.

Each step of increasing scientific knowledge important to cosmology is described in a logical procession of conclusions, facts and theories, chapter by chapter. Why does time have a cosoms I understand a whole lot more about General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, and why they make sense and are such powerful tools in describing our universe. I think I learnt some things Could the universe exist without space and time?

Greene uses lots of pop cultural referenced examples to illustr I finally finished Brian Greene’s Teiido of the Cosmos and I am more confused than ever about string theory, Vreene and the nature of spacetime.

Dec 31, Mahmut Homsi rated it really liked it. Author Brian Green is to be commended for his brilliant attempt to communicate the intricacies of particle physics, general and special relativity, the Big Bang, quantum mechanics and, yes–even string theory–to the interested lay person. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe—that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists—just might be wrong.


The other criticism that one might raise is that string theory and the multiverse, in particular, remain highly controversial in the field.

Having trouble explaining the vibrations of one dimensional strings? That said, I think it was unecessary to use popular culture the way he did. I understand that Inflationary Theory is not merely a tweak of Big Bang theory to enable it to fit observed facts, but a whole greenf way of looking at clsmos growth of the universe that actually explains much more about the fundamental physics.

This is a good book, in part. It is amazing how he manages to convey potentially complex subjects, such as quantum mechanics and relativity, in a simple but at the same time rigorous manner. If you hang a bucket of water on a rope and twist the rope, as the rope unwinds, spinning teijdo bucket, at first the water remains stationary until the friction of the bucket’s movement makes the water begin to spin.

The Fabric of the Cosmos

Thanks for telling us about the problem. The sweating was a crass simulation of something known as black body radiation. I’m looking forward to reading his still more recent work. The Fabric of the Cosmos 3 19 Mar 31, He says that there would cosmoss a way to get all the bits of egg to fly back at the right speed and reconstitute.


This is the first one that I almost, nearly–at least sometimes almost nearly–got. OK, He’s God, so I suppose he can know all that, but it seems kind of difficult to figure how He can know the future when it hasn’t happened yet.

Shouldn’t it be the job of schools to get kids to care and wanting to learn rather than forcing meaningless facts onto them? You are left with only a part of the picture. Furthermore, Greene is obviously passionate about the subject matter, and that is something that is contagious. I wish I could say ‘The Fabric of the Cosmos’ is an easy read which makes clear a subject that only geniuses understand normally about what classic physics and quantum mechanics have to do with understanding the mysteries of cosmology, particularly the theories regarding what the universe is, how it began, what made it function the way it does and why there seems to be an arrow of Time.

Jan 26, Paul Perry rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Of course, as Greene points out, much of what physics proposes is theory that has not been experimentally verified. The flatness problem highlights the issue that a tiny difference in origin conditions would have generated a universe entirely different from the one we observe today. Quotes from The Fabric of the In both instances Socrates is bested in his arguments by the philosophy coming from Elea.
