Has Gribbin found God?,
This review is from: In Search of the Multiverse (Hardcover)
Has John Gribbin found God? His latest mind-blowing description of cutting edge physics and quantum weirdness starts out conventionally enough (if any of this stuff can be thought of as being conventional) but ends up concluding that our universe is an artifact created by intelligent beings in another universe. The way he explains it, it all seems quite logical, even if along the way he espouses the "block universe" idea (which Einstein favoured) which says that all times are as real as all space, so that "tomorrow" and "yesterday" always exist, in the same way that New York exists even when you are not in New York. The difference is that according to Gribbin ALL possible tomorrows and yesterdays exist in the Multiverse!
Explaning all this involves quantum physics, thermodynamics, and string theory. But in Gribbin's skillful hands the process is quite painless and straightforward. If you liked his tale of Schrodinger's Cat, this is definitely for you.
