Galilean physics has been repeatedly proven correct for centuries. It teaches that all phenomena are produced by matters having masses, thus, have physical origins. This book reports the breakthrough discovery of the physical origins to logically interpre

Cosmology borrows metaphysical and mystical baggage from quantum theory and relativity to explain large-scale, universal phenomena. The singularity in spacetime (a dimensionless point) is borrowed from General Relativity and is obviously a metaphysical construct since matter-energy cannot logically exist in non-space and non-time. The mystical idea of getting something from nothing is borrowed from quantum physicists who inform us that virtual particles can pop into existence out of the vacuum (which has zero-point energy) and can become real particles of matter under certain circumstances. This quantum foam, as it is called, gives a rationale for how the Big Bang could have banged into existence from nothing.The idea of space expansion comes from relativity which indicates that space is a flexible physical medium. However, the notion in cosmology, which contradicts relativity, is that space is expanding faster than light, moving galactic islands from each other at greater and greater distances. The patch for the faster-than-light space expansion contradiction is that matter is not moving faster than light because the matter in galaxies is at rest in space and is just being carried along at superluminal speeds. As Michio Kaku says:

What happens when the Dalai Lama meets with leading physicists and a historian? This book is the carefully edited record of the fascinating discussions at a Mind and Life conference in which five leading physicists and a historian (David Finkelstein, George Greenstein, Piet Hut, Arthur Zajonc, Anton Zeilinger, and Tu Weiming) discussed with the Dalai Lama current thought in theoretical quantum physics, in the context of Buddhist philosophy. A contribution to the science-religion interface, and a useful explanation of our basic understanding of quantum reality, couched at a level that intelligent readers without a deep involvement in science can grasp. In the tradition of other popular books on resonances between modern quantum physics and Zen or Buddhist mystical traditions--notably The Dancing Wu Li Masters and The Tao of Physics, this book gives a clear and useful update of the genuine correspondences between these two rather disparate approaches to understanding the nature of reality.

This book tracks the history of the theory of relativity through Einstein’s life, with in-depth studies of its background as built upon by ideas from earlier scientists. The focus points of Einstein’s theory of relativity include its development throughout his life; the origins of his ideas and his indebtedness to the earlier works of Galileo, Newton, Faraday, Mach and others; the application of the theory to the birth of modern cosmology; and his quest for a unified field theory. Treading a fine line between the popular and technical (but not shying away from the occasional equation), this book explains the entire range of relativity and weaves an up-to-date biography of Einstein throughout. The result is an explanation of the world of relativity, based on an extensive journey into earlier physics and a simultaneous voyage into the mind of Einstein, written for the curious and intelligent reader.

Between 1920 and 1970, cosmology became a branch of physics. This text examines how the big bang theory drew inspiration from, and eventually triumphed over, rival views, mainly the steady-state theory and its concept of a stationary universe.

In a universe as large as this, it would be surprising if earth was the only inhabited planet. Everything we know about cosmology today, suggested that life should be common. Almost certainly some of that would be similar to ourselves, and would also probably be using radio technology in much the way that we do. We should be able to pick up these signals, with the powerful radio telescopes we have today, and the surprising thing is that after 50 years of continuous listening, we have not yet detected a single one. Fermis paradox relates to this finding, but in its original form, was posed as a question, as to why, in a universe such as this, we have no knowledge of the extraterrestrial life which should be common. Many answers have been proposed, none of them satisfactory, and this book looks at the changes which have taken place since Fermis day, both with respect to the origin and evolution of life, and the advancing trends in modern cosmology, to provide current information from which readers can form their own opinion. The author presents a personal view, which is hypothetical and speculative, but consistent with facts nonetheless.

Our cosmic soup is in an endless churn, changing the circumstances of events from moment to moment. Russ Otter swims in this cosmic soup every waking moment, to discover, learn, fail, and grow. In this, the second edition of his Swimming in Cosmic Soup, he shares his most recent discoveries and theories from his lifelong quest for understanding, truth, and peace. This study provides a review of the scientific knowledge we have of our universe, presented in easy-to-understand terms, and a suggestion of what this might mean to us. It takes a look at religion from a new perspective, one in which all sentient people can enjoy a loving, religious life whose teachings are removed from human extrapolations, rituals, suppositions, and institutions. It also offers a pragmatic view of theocratic histories—and the fallout we are living with today as a result. Otter presents an examination—using responsibility, freedom, and ethics—of the politically correct culture that leaves no stone unturned for the mischief this is brought down upon society, along with a look at the nature of politics and the direction of his own politics, coupled with the ultimate force and value of humor. In this study, Otter presents an engaging ride through philosophy, history, and science as he questions assumptions and the great unknowns of mystery, discovery, and hope.

From the central concept of the field--which depicts the world as a mutually interactive whole, with each part connected to every other part by an underlying field-- have come models as diverse as quantum mathematics and Saussure's theory of language. In The Cosmic Web, N. Katherine Hayles seeks to establish the scope of the field concept and to assess its importance for contemporary thought. She then explores the literary strategies that are attributable directly or indirectly to the new paradigm; among the texts at which she looks closely are Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Nabokov's Ada, D. H. Lawrence's early novels and essays, Borges's fiction, and Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow.

Cosmology is an unusual science with an unusual history. This book examines the formative years of modern cosmology from the perspective of its interaction with religious thought. As the first study of its kind, it reveals how closely associated the development of cosmology has been with considerations of a philosophical and religious nature. From nineteenth-century thermodynamics to the pioneering cosmological works of Georges LemaŒtre and Arthur E Milne, religion has shaped parts of modern cosmological theory. By taking the religious component seriously, a new and richer history of cosmology emerges.

Habent sua Jata colloquia. The present volume has its ongms in a spring 1984 international workshop held, under the auspices of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, by The Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas of Tel-Aviv University in cooperation with The Van Leer Jerusalem Foundation. It contains twelve of the twenty papers presented at the workshop by the twenty-six participants. As Proceedings of conferences go, it is a good representative of the genre, sharing in the main characteristics of its ilk. It may even be one of the rare instances of a book of Proceed ings whose descriptive title applies equally well to the workshop's topic and to the interrelations between. the various papers it includes. Tension and Accommodation are the key words. Thus, while John Glucker's paper, 'Images of Plato in Late Antiqu ity,' raises, by means of the Platonic example, the problem of interpreta tion of ancient texts, suggesting the assignment of proper weight to the creator of the tradition and not only to his many later interpreters in assessing the proper relationship between originator and commentators, Abraham Wasserstein's 'Hunches that did not come off: Some Prob lems in Greek Science' illustrates the long-lived Whiggish tradition in the history of science and mathematics. As those familiar with my work will undoubtedly note, Wasserstein's position is far removed from my stance on ancient Greek mathematics.
