The Illusion of Time, NOVA: Fabric of the Cosmos .....
New Layers of Reality, Lying Just
Beneath the Surface of
Our Everyday World
Space and time from the very
fabric of the cosmos. Yet they
remain among the most mysterious
of concepts. Best-selling author,
theoretical physicist and Columbia
University Professor, Brian Greene
asks simple yet boggling questions,
- Is space an entity?
- Why does time have a direction?
- Could the universe exist without space and time?
- Can we travel to the past?
From Newton's unchanging realm in
which space and time are absolute, to
Einstein's fluid conception of spacetime,
to quantum mechanics' entangled
arena, where vastly distant objects can
instantaneously coordinate their
behavior, Greene takes us all, regardless
of our scientific backgrounds, on an
irresistible and revelatory journey to the
new layers of reality that modern physics
has discovered, lying just beneath the
surface of our everyday world.
