Whereas Brian May studied physics and is currently doing his long-lost PhD , Bryanton has never touched a scientific article, let alone stood near the mathematics required to grasp them. All his "knowledge" comes from science fiction which he uses as genuine "references" for his wild ideas , popular science books Greene, Kaku and Randall and Scientific American. Bryanton thinks these multiverses are in the dimensions 5 to Moreover, our third spatial dimension is merely the thing "we fold through" to go from one place on a surface to another, which are not directly linked. Physically and mathematically, what he claims about space and time is absolute bullocks, if I may use the expression.

Shelves: rainy-day-books , non-fiction Maybe I only like this bok because I like quantum physics and quantum mechanics. But I doubt it. This is for everyone. All of the science is presented in a user-friendly fashion, unpretentious and humorous.
And who would mind that? I was hoping for science that I could understand, but this is more a new-age, popular take on the science related to M theory string theory.
Still, it was interesting to get this take on it and there are things that were very useful for me and for what I want to do. The explanations were pretty clear and the idea seems to hold together I got this book because the story I am writing has some inter-dimensional elements in it and I wanted to get a little more science behind what I was writing.
The explanations were pretty clear and the idea seems to hold together fairly well. Jun 20, Erica Martin rated it it was ok To be fair, the author warns the audience several times that hes basically making all of this stuff up.
The book basically reads like a long form of the strange stuff your weird friend in college said that time he was really high. I came upon his book when I was figuring out how to explain why committees dont work. I was on a committee formed to figure out how to implement a new law at state level.
We were all bright and competent people, but we didnt get much done. I began to think of each of us as shifting, independent spheres of information and involvement. There was no big sphere, no universal guiding concept, philosophy and expected result, to contain us; to move us in the same direction. I began to see that no one, at any one point saw anything the same way as another.
I imagined each perception as a line of slight, taken from different points, through this mass of spheres, which would allow a person to see many different things in many ways, without adding to, or taking away from the mass of information. I could perform this deconstruction as, per his concept, everything could be contained within ten dimensions of measure. It was to me, an indexing or filing system. I could place the individuals, and their perceptions, along with the groupings of individuals, at various dimensional levels.
To expect that the filing system will animate a bad idea, or a good ideas take equal footing in this system, is not accurate. To expect it is a theory of everything is wrong. The information can be arranged, understood relative to the structure, but the structure is not the information.
Expecting the structure is the information, is seeing the medium as the message. Inflexible data management systems force the information into the medium. My background is in data analytics. Well worth reading in my recommendation. What is curious is that today, quantum physics uses the term "string theory" as one of the end theories in quantum physics.
I love connecting the dots between fiction and emerging scientific theory. Enjoy the read. There are some philosophical elements also tied in, such as the discussion on free will, but those are kept even shorter than the explanation of his tenth dimension imagination. All his "knowledge" comes from science fiction which he uses as genuine "references" , popular science books Greene, Kaku and Randall and Scientific American.
