Description

In many respects a sequel to the author's successful "God and the New Physic", this text explores the most fascinating areas of modern physics - why does maths, an abstract system of logic invented by man, prove to be so useful in understanding the laws of nature? Why are there laws of nature at all? Is the existence of intelligent life a random chance or in some sense an inevitable and essential part of the cosmos? Can there be any scientific, rather than simply mystical sense in thinking that the universe has purpose? And, can physics and theology find any common ground in understanding the nature of life, the universe and everything? In the book, Paul Davies reasons that the remarkable achievement of science in unlocking the secrets of nature points to a deeply significant link between the human mind and the organization of the physical world.show more
