4.0 out of 5 stars A logical thought process, 7 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hidden In Plain Sight: The simple link between relativity and quantum mechanics (Kindle Edition)
This is an interesting philosophical look at the unification theory of the large scale and the quantum scale. It is well written and leads you through the authors thought processes in a easy and clear way and avoids all of the complexity of the mathematical proof which would be required to justify the claims..

Much of the book works to show that the universe we live in is a closed environment and that the parallel universe is purely there to justify the complex mathematics, which isn't shown in the book, of other proofs currently being worked on. The philosophical argument is powerful and well argued, however the proof is purely a thought process and makes one think of which proof do I like and whether we are living in a single universe or is there something else like a parallel universe out there.

My final thought when closing the last page was, is the author a religious man and trying to justify a god creating a universe or is this a scientist who is unhappy with the lack of evidence in the current proofs which are causing the invention of parallel universes just to justify the mathematics because they break down without these grand ideas. His argument for relative measurement is powerful but does not touch how the universe begins and why inflation is required to justify the mathematics of current proofs. I am still thinking about this.

This is a book which I don't regret reading and it has made me think.
