Critical acclaim for John Gribbin

""The master of popular science.""
Sunday Times (London)

""Gribbin explains things very well indeed, and there's not an equation in sight.""
David Goodstein, The New York Times Book Review (on Almost Everyone's Guide to Science)

""Gribbin breathes life into the core ideas of complexity science, and argues convincingly that the basic laws, even in biology, will ultimately turn out to be simple.""
Nature magazine (on Deep Simplicity)

""Gribbin takes us through the basics [of chaos theory] with his customary talent for accessibility and clarity. [His] arguments are driven not by impersonal equations but by a sense of wonder at the presence in the universe and in nature of simple, self-organizing harmonies underpinning all structures, whether they are stars or flowers.""
Sunday Times (London) (on Deep Simplicity)

""In the true quantum realm, Gribbin remains the premier expositor of the latest developments.""
Booklist (on Schrödinger's Kittens and the Search for Reality)

Universes, it is natural to think of them as lying side by side, with universes that are very similar to our own close by (‘next door’), and universes that are different from our own becoming increasingly different as you ‘move’ (whatever that means) farther away from our own time line, in a sense ‘sideways’ in time. This is the basis of many science fiction stories, and it also appears in some popular accounts of the Multiverse. But there is no reason to think that the Multiverse is like that.

To be vibrating in, things changed. Compactification became a key component of the new candidates for the Theory of Everything that emerged in the 1990s and were developed in the early years of the twenty-first century. THE MAGIC OF M The most worrying aspect of string theory was that, in spite of its success, there was no unique version of the theory. There were, indeed, many stringy candidates for the Theory of Everything. To be precise, by the early 1990s the theorists had come up.

Very rare occasions. This would, in effect, create new bubble universes, each emerging from its own big bang and expanding in its own way and with its own set of physical laws, separated by regions of expanding space with the ‘old’ configuration, making a pattern similar to that of the bubble universes in eternal inflation. There could be bubbles within bubbles within bubbles, with no beginning and no end. This didn’t catch on immediately, but in 2003 a team known as KKLT55 came up with a.

Might be possible to tweak the process of black hole formation in such a way that the force of gravity is a little stronger in the baby universe than in the parent universe, without the designers being able to say exactly how much stronger it will be. And the third level, for a very advanced civilization, would involve the ability to set precisely the parameters of physics in the baby universe, such as the exact value of the carbon resonance, thereby designing the baby universe in detail. It.
