Críticas:

"Paul Davies' Cosmic Jackpot is a truly mesmerizing book, no matter which you universe you may inhabit!" --Michio Kaku, prof. of theoretical physics, author of Hyperspace and Parallel Worlds

Reseña del editor:

The physicist-author of The Mind of God looks at cutting-edge scientific discoveries to explore why many of the fundamental features of the physical universe--from the speed of light to the carbon atom--seem tailor-made to produce life, offering a revealing study of the radical multiverse theory and its implications in terms of the nature of reality, time, life, and the cosmos. Originally published as Cosmic Jackpot. Reprint.

Descripción Cengage Learning, Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Goldilocks Enigma is Paul Davies s eagerly awaited return to cosmology, the successor to his critically acclaimed bestseller The Mind of God. Here he tackles all the big questions, including the biggest of them all: Why does the universe seem so well adapted for life? In his characteristically clear and elegant style, Davies shows how recent scientific discoveries point to a perplexing fact: many different aspects of the cosmos, from the properties of the humble carbon atom to the speed of light, seem tailor-made to produce life. A radical new theory says it s because our universe is just one of an infinite number of universes, each one slightly different. Our universe is bio-friendly by accident -- we just happened to win the cosmic jackpot. While this multiverse theory is compelling, it has bizarre implications, such as the existence of infinite copies of each of us and Matrix-like simulated universes. And it still leaves a lot unexplained. Davies believes there s a more satisfying solution to the problem of existence: the observations we make today could help shape the nature of reality in the remote past. If this is true, then life -- and, ultimately, consciousness -- aren t just incidental byproducts of nature, but central players in the evolution of the universe. Whether he s elucidating dark matter or dark energy, M-theory or the multiverse, Davies brings the leading edge of science into sharp focus, provoking us to think about the cosmos and our place within it in new and thrilling ways.
