There was a time when "universe" meant all there is. Everything. Yet, in recent years discoveries in physics and cosmology have led a number of scientists to conclude that our universe may be one among many. With crystal-clear prose and inspired use of analogy, Brian Greene shows how a range of different "multiverse" proposals emerges from theories developed to explain the most refined observations of both subatomic particles and the dark depths of space: a multiverse in which you have an infinite number of doppelgängers, each reading this sentence in a distant universe; a multiverse comprising a vast ocean of bubble universes, of which ours is but one; a multiverse that endlessly cycles through time, or one that might be hovering millimeters away yet remains invisible; another in which every possibility allowed by quantum physics is brought to life. Or, perhaps strangest of all, a multiverse made purely of mathematics.
Greene, one of our foremost physicists and science writers, takes us on a captivating exploration of these parallel worlds and reveals how much of reality's true nature may be deeply hidden within them.

Sehr interessant

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Dieses Buch ist ein "Physikbuch" zu einem der komplexesten Bereiche der modernen Physik, aber Brian Greene schafft es wunderbar, die schwierigen Fragen anhand leicht nachvollziehbarer (alltäglicher) Beispiele zu beantworten. Dafür benutzt er keine Formeln (die auch ich als Physikstudent nicht nachvollziehen könnte), sondern erklärt es so, dass jeder, der auch nur ein ganz kleines bisschen Vorstellungskraft hat, ihm folgen kann.

Gut gelungen und empfehlenswert für Leute, die Interesse an unserer Welt haben!

The mathematics physics entaglement

Brain Greene gives the laymen the opportunity to glimpse into the latest physics developments. His explanations are clear, although I sometimes wonder why rudimentary explanations like the one on logarithms are required when every person who has an interest in such topics will not come completely devoid of any mathematics background. Also the undeniable passion in the authors and readers voice make the subject sometimes less believable as would have been by a professional neutral reader.

In spite of this minor critique, I really enjoyed the continued journey through string theory, the inflaton field and the many versions of the multiverse. A part from these insights, one phrase will certainly remain on my mind for the years to come: "we have to take the mathematical models more seriously". There is indeed many arguments to be made that the mathematical equations deliver more than their original use and that the results we seek in an equation could indeed come entangled with results we will observe in later experiments. Maybe I will need to read a third book by Brian Greene to convince me that the entanglement of results comprises all results of reality. A sort of: mathematics as the quantum theory of the physical reality. Sounds crazy, but all predictions turn out to be true.
