Parallel Worlds: The Science of Alternative Universes and Our Future in the Cosmos Reviews
Michio Kaku has been one of my favorite over the years. Being a physicist, its easier for me to appreciate how difficult it is to explain such theories in a language that can even be comprehensible to the younger students of this vast subject. Prof. Kaku succeeds with his immaculate treatment of some of the most beautiful theories of Physics, without any usage of Mathematics...
Hallo, ein Musst-Read für jeden, der sich für den Aufbau unseres "Multiversums" interessiert. Michio Kaku schreibt bildlich und witzig, bringt aber das Thema jeden Laien verständlich nahe. Sieht auch noch super im Bücherregal aus. Sehr Empfehlenswert.
Since I am a layperson and a non-scientist, this book took me several weeks to read. It was well worth the time. Professor Kaku addresses issues in cosmology thoroughly but with great clarity. Each chapter drew me further into pondering the origins of the universe, the possible existence of parallel universes, and the issues raised by these reflections about the future of humanity. As a Christian, I especially appreciated his reflections about the meaning of life and his unbiased and inclusive thoughts about the relevance of religion to cosmology. Highly recommended.
One of my favorite books. I'm hardly the science-type, but I've gotten sucked into Physics (study of matter) as a kind of hobby. Michio Kaku takes his readers on an entertaining yet enlightening tour of string theory. This is the theory that the smallest material particle in the universe is not a point in space but a string, and how that string vibrates determines the element. Changing the vibration results in a different element. Dr Kaku is not afraid of heretical questions, asking "If the universe is a symphony of strings, then is there a Composer?" In his chapter "A Designer Universe?" he acknowledges the evidence for a Creator and explains his disinclination to believe. Likely Dr Kaku doesn't know or doesn't care that the Bible includes stories of, and references to, and promises of parallel worlds.Dr Kaku has self-promoting tendencies, as his critics rightly claim. But his desire to gain an audience enriches his explanatory skills. He has mastered the ability to present scientific theory in a manner unscientific audiences can understand, yet without talking down to us. This is a skill other Physics authors--Lisa Randall "Warped Passages", Heinerich Pas "The Perfect Wave"--never quite master. (Both books well worth reading.) If you're a Physics hobbyist like myself, or simply enjoy thinking in new ways, "Parallel Worlds" is a great launch pad into current thinking about reality. ~
An incredible amount of information packed into this small book. I read bits and pieces at will based on my interests, for example scientific views on free will and determinism. It is written in laymen's language and one doesn't need to be a scientist to understand. Michio Kaku's views about future reality come from quantum theory micro world, and seem very surreal and bizarre . Very interesting.
This book was a fun trip. The beginning and ending are a little mathematics heavy, but Ivery much enjoyed the mind boggling concepts. It's definitely one you couldread several times. I had a lot of fun thought provoking conversations thanks tothis book.
A great journey into the parallel universes as predicted by the M-string physics theory. Are we alone?, Do we have parallel realities? What creates our choice?, Do all things exists independent of our observation?. Although it is a pop-science book, not extrictly a philosophy book, it brings several trascendental questions to our minds: What is the purpose of the universe?. As all Kaku's books, very pleasant to read it.
