Bridging Science and Spirit
What a joy it is to read a cutting-edge physics book written for the lay person! Fred Alan Wolf's book, "Time Warps and Space Twists" sets for itself the challenging goal of describing some of the newest physics explanations for how God created the universe in terms just about anyone can understand. Rather than over-simplifying concepts from physics, Wolf presents each theory and theorem in layman's terms which are clear enough for most anyone to follow. I especially love the way Wolf does such a marvelous job describing how our view of the world has changed so much in just the last few years with regard to things like the Higgs field, tachyons, and tardyons. Thanks to some of the newest findings in quantum physics, we can now "say bye-bye to causality in quantum field theory," providing us with fascinating insights about retrocausality and backward-through-time travel. Highly recommended for anyone interested in spirituality and science!
