Science Publishers #ad - Is consciousness an epiphenomenal happenstance of this particular universe? or does the very concept of a universe depend upon its presence? Does consciousness merely perceive reality, always "out there" in the world? These questions and more, or does reality depend upon it? Did consciousness simply emerge as an effect of evolution? Or was it, in some sense, are addressed in this special edition.

Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime

#ad
Dutton #ad - We just have to accept that there is more than one of us in the universe. Instant new york times bestsellerone of publishers weekly’s “most Anticipated Books of the Fall”As you read these words, copies of you are being created. We are on the threshold of a new understanding—of where we are in the cosmos, and what we are made of.

The many worlds theory of quantum behavior says that every time there is a quantum event, a world splits off with everything in it the same, except in that other world the quantum event didn't happen. Many of every one of us. Rarely does a book so fully reorganize how we think about our place in the universe.

Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime #ad - Academics discourage students from working on the "dead end" of quantum foundations. Step-by-step in carroll's uniquely lucid way, he tackles the major objections to this otherworldly revelation until his case is inescapably established. Oxford university Press USA. Already hailed as a masterpiece, something Deeply Hidden shows for the first time that facing up to the essential puzzle of quantum mechanics utterly transforms how we think about space and time.

His reconciling of quantum mechanics with Einstein’s theory of relativity changes, well, everything. Quantum mechanics  has always had obvious gaps—which have come to be simply ignored. Science popularizers keep telling us how weird it is,  how impossible it is to understand.

Shadows of the Mind: A Search for the Missing Science of Consciousness

#ad
Oxford University Press #ad - To illuminate what he believes this "something" might be, and to suggest where a new physics must proceed so that we may understand it, Penrose cuts a wide swathe through modern science, providing penetrating looks at everything from Turing machines computers programmed from artificial intelligence to the implications of Godel's theorem maintaining that conscious thinking must indeed involve ingredients that cannot adequately be stimulated by mere computation.

A new york times bestseller when it appeared in 1989, roger penrose's the Emperor's New Mind was universally hailed as a marvelous survey of modern physics as well as a brilliant reflection on the human mind, offering a new perspective on the scientific landscape and a visionary glimpse of the possible future of science.

This is not a religious argument that the mind is something other than physical nor is it based on the brain's vast complexity the weather is immensely complex, says Penrose, but it is still a computable thing, at least in theory. But perhaps more important, in this volume he points the way to a new science, one that may eventually explain the physical basis of the human mind.

Shadows of the Mind: A Search for the Missing Science of Consciousness #ad - Instead, he provides powerful arguments to support his conclusion that there is something in the conscious activity of the brain that transcends computation--and will find no explanation in terms of present-day science. Of particular interest is penrose's extensive examination of quantum mechanics, which introduces some new ideas that differ markedly from those advanced in The Emperor's New Mind, especially concerning the mysterious interface where classical and quantum physics meet.

Shadows of the mind provides an illuminating look at where these profound changes may take place and what our future understanding of the world may be. For physics to accommodate something that is as foreign to our current physical picture as is the phenomenon of consciousness, we must expect a profound change--one that alters the very underpinnings of our philosophical viewpoint as to the nature of reality.

Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness

#ad
Oxford University Press #ad - In trying to understand the atom, physicists built quantum mechanics, the most successful theory in science and the basis of one-third of our economy. Free will and anthropic principles become crucial issues, and the connection of consciousness with the cosmos suggested by some leading quantum cosmologists is mind-blowing.

Readers are brought to a boundary where the particular expertise of physicists is no longer the only sure guide. They present the quantum mystery honestly, emphasizing what is and what is not speculation. But every interpretation of quantum physics involves consciousness. They found, to their embarrassment, that with their theory, physics encounters consciousness.

Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness #ad - In the few decades since the bell's theorem experiments established the existence of entanglement Einstein's "spooky action", and the mysteries, interest in the foundations, of quantum mechanics has accelerated. The authors have also drawn on many responses from readers and instructors to improve the clarity of the book's explanations.

They will find, instead, the facts and hints provided by quantum mechanics and the ability to speculate for themselves. Quantum enigma's description of the experimental quantum facts, and the quantum theory explaining them, is undisputed. Vintage. Oxford university Press USA.

Cycles of Time: An Extraordinary New View of the Universe

#ad
Vintage #ad - Used book in Good Condition. Oxford university Press USA. This groundbreaking book presents a new perspective on three of cosmology’s essential questions: What came before the Big Bang? What is the source of order in our universe? And what cosmic future awaits us?  Penrose shows how the expected fate of our ever-accelerating and expanding universe—heat death or ultimate entropy—can actually be reinterpreted as the conditions that will begin a new “Big Bang.

Cycles of Time: An Extraordinary New View of the Universe #ad - He details the basic principles beneath our universe, the paramount significance of black holes, explaining various standard and non-standard cosmological models, the fundamental role of the cosmic microwave background, and other basic building blocks of contemporary physics. Intellectually thrilling and widely accessible, Cycles of Time is a welcome new contribution to our understanding of the universe from one of our greatest mathematicians and thinkers.

Quantum Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum

#ad
Basic Books #ad - Like the theoretical minimum, this volume runs parallel to Susskind's eponymous Stanford University-hosted continuing education course. An approachable yet rigorous introduction to a famously difficult topic, Quantum Mechanics provides a tool kit for amateur scientists to learn physics at their own pace.

. Oxford university Press USA. Vintage. Basic Books AZ. Now, physicist leonard susskind has teamed up with data engineer Art Friedman to present the theory and associated mathematics of the strange world of quantum mechanics. In this follow-up to the new york times best-selling The Theoretical Minimum, Susskind and Friedman provide a lively introduction to this famously difficult field, which attempts to understand the behavior of sub-atomic objects through mathematical abstractions.

Quantum Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum #ad - Used book in Good Condition. From the bestselling author of The Theoretical Minimum, a DIY introduction to the math and science of quantum mechanics. First he taught you classical mechanics. Unlike other popularizations that shy away from quantum mechanics' weirdness, Quantum Mechanics embraces the utter strangeness of quantum logic.

The authors offer crystal-clear explanations of the principles of quantum states, entanglement, among other topics, uncertainty and time dependence, and particle and wave states, and each chapter includes exercises to ensure mastery of each area.

The Case Against Reality: Why Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes

#ad
W. W. Norton & Company #ad - Basic Books AZ. Used book in Good Condition. From examining why fashion designers create clothes that give the illusion of a more “attractive” body shape to studying how companies use color to elicit specific emotions in consumers, and even dismantling the very notion that spacetime is objective reality, The Case Against Reality dares us to question everything we thought we knew about the world we see.

Can we trust our senses to tell us the truth?challenging leading scientific theories that claim that our senses report back objective reality, cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman argues that while we should take our perceptions seriously, we should not take them literally. Vintage. How can it be possible that the world we see is not objective reality? And how can our senses be useful if they are not communicating the truth? Hoffman grapples with these questions and more over the course of this eye-opening work.

The Case Against Reality: Why Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes #ad - Ever since homo sapiens has walked the earth, natural selection has favored perception that hides the truth and guides us toward useful action, shaping our senses to keep us alive and reproducing. 40 illustrations; 8 pages of color illustrations Oxford university Press USA. Just like a file icon on a desktop screen is a useful symbol rather than a genuine representation of what a computer file looks like, the objects we see every day are merely icons, allowing us to navigate the world safely and with ease.

The real-world implications for this discovery are huge. These impressions, though, are not objective reality. We observe a speeding car and do not walk in front of it; we see mold growing on bread and do not eat it.

Vintage. With his trademark clarity and humor, the quest for the foundations of mathematics, Holt probes the mysteries of quantum mechanics, and the nature of logic and truth.

From jim holt, the new york times bestselling author of why does the World Exist?, comes an entertaining and accessible guide to the most profound scientific and mathematical ideas of recent centuries in When Einstein Walked with Gödel: Excursions to the Edge of Thought. Does time exist? what is infinity? why do mirrors reverse left and right but not up and down? In this scintillating collection, Holt explores the human mind, the cosmos, and the thinkers who’ve tried to encompass the latter with the former.

When Einstein Walked with Gödel: Excursions to the Edge of Thought #ad - Used book in Good Condition. Constitution contained a terrible contradiction―and whether the universe truly has a future. Holt offers a painless and playful introduction to many of our most beautiful but least understood ideas, from Einsteinian relativity to string theory, and also invites us to consider why the greatest logician of the twentieth century believed the U.
