The Cosmic Code by Heinz Pagels is a very enjoyable book to read
The Cosmic Code by Heinz Pagels is a very enjoyable book to read if you would like to perceive the world in a new and unimaginable way. This book breaks down the basic components of quantum physics in an extremely helpful and comprehensible way. For anyone who enjoys finding out what the math behind science is trying to say, this is a great book to choose to read. There is very minimal math that is used to explain quantum physics. This book takes you from topics such as deterministic beliefs, to the special theory of relativity, and to areas such as wave mechanics and matrix mechanics. This book takes you from physicists such as Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Max Born, and Erwin Schrödinger. It helps to understand the long journey that these physicists experienced in order to come to a general agreement on how the universe truly works. The book reviews interesting phenomenons such as the “Twin Paradox”, in which clocks are said to move slower at accelerating speeds. Quantum weirdness is also discussed and explained in the best possible way. Another great aspect of the book is that it helps understand quantum physics as a whole by giving very visual and helpful examples. Since trying to understand the world at a quantum level is not necessarily in our nature, real-life examples help to identify what is actually happening.

This one of my favorite books. Pagels takes your prior knowledge
This one of my favorite books. Pagels takes your prior knowledge and destroys it with quantum physics.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I love science and this book has increased this love even more. I cant stress enough my love for this book.
Release what you already know and let Pagles take you on a journey through the cosmic code.
