Event-Symmetric Space-Time

Event-Symmetric Space-Time presents a startlingly integrated world view from the forefront of physics. In a style which mixes technical notes with clear expositions, Event-Symmetric Space-Time will be of interest to researchers in physics and interested non-professionals alike.

Description

How much can physics explain? “Event-Symmetric Space-Time” presents a startlingly integrated world view from the forefront of physics. So often we read about the new quantum paradigm which has replaced the old mechanistic philosophy of physics, but seldom do we find “what the paradigm is” spelt out so succinctly. “The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.” (Muriel Rukeyser) This is the storyteller’s point of view. Through a literal interpretation of those words we transcend causality and determinism to see the quantum multiverse as a whole.

Throughout this book, the author returns to the principle of event symmetry — in particle physics, in cosmology, in superstring theory, in epistemology. Coupled to the storyteller’s paradigm this new idea of philosophy and physics dares to free us from the constraints of our intuition, to reveal natures truths. We are in the midst of a revolution in our understanding of physics and the universe. This new interpretation of superstring theory is slowly helping to bring physicists’ long search for the holy grail of knowledge to fruition.
