I've always been fascinated by quantum physics and the possibility of alternate realities.

Tags: Quantum, Realities  ✍ Author: James Dashner

The birth of science as we know it arguably began with Isaac Newton's formulation of the laws of gravitation and motion. It is no exaggeration to say that physics was reborn in the early 20th-century with the twin revolutions of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity.

It is impossible to trap modern physics into predicting anything with perfect determinism because it deals with probabilities from the outset.

This book is about physics and its about physics and its relationship with mathematics and how they seem to be intimately related and to what extent can you explore this relationship and trust it.

Tags: Book, Trust  ✍ Author: Roger Penrose

And the actual achievements of biology are explanations in terms of mechanisms founded on physics and chemistry, which is not the same thing as explanations in terms of physics and chemistry.
