Quantum Physics: The New Horizon
"The God Effect", this may not be the greatest name for this book that is based on physics, yet an intriguing title that can lure a reader into reading it. This book is not so much about the rumored "God particle" also known as the Higgs Boson, but about the journey that quantum physics has gone through. It starts with the beginning of quantum, with the debates between Einstein and Neils Bore with thought experiments to the quantum computer and vast topics in between which include quantum encryption, quantum telepathy, and discussion of quantum particles .
Quantum physics was first thought up in the 18th century, and has taken off ever since. Most of quantum physics is based off of thoughts proven by math, and yet to still be proven. The ideas of people have been about 30 years ahead of what can be experimentally proven. A good example of this would be Einstein's experiments proposed by his famous paper known as EPR. The experiment was finally proven in the 1960's, and instead of disproving quantum physics like Einstein wanted, it actually qualified it.
This book is not for the faint of heart. This book requires an open mind and an accepting one of one beyond what is thought to be "known" and everyday knowledge. This book opened the doors for me and how the world works. It created a plethora of knowledge that I did not previously know, and as a student it helped me understand my classes much more, especially my physics and chemistry class.
Some of the language was a little confusing for me and some of the material went over my head when I was reading through this book. This language barrier was hard for me to get through, but once I got into the book, it became easier for me to get through it.
This book was an excellent book in the explanation of quantum physics, and how this world was unknown to me before reading this book. The information I gained through this book was a valuable asset to my knowledge and will help me become a better student.
