How and when ...
How and when did human intelligence evolve? Is it possible that consciousness will exist after the body has been rendered obsolete? These are the central questions Darling addresses in this mind-bending journey. Along the way the reader is treated to a stimulating discussion of evolution, the relationship between mathematics and physical reality, the genesis of the right and left brains, God, the meaning of language, and the nature of quantum physics.
Darling explains these extraordinary assertions in clear, lyrical prose that makes the most complex concepts wonderfully accessible. Equations of Eternity is science writing at its most involving.
In a dazzling, lyrical mixture of science and philosophy, acclaimed science writer David Darling makes a provocative case for the workings of human consciousness, its origins, and its destiny when the next "Big Bang" precipitates a quantum leap in evolution. Equations of Eternity rethinks thought and the existence of intelligence in a way that will give readers a lot to think about.
