INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A Science News favorite science book of 2019 As you read these words, copies of you are being created. Sean Carroll, theoretical physicist and one of this world’s most celebrated writers on science, rewrites the history of 20th century physics. Already hailed as a masterpiece, Something Deeply Hidden shows for the first time that facing up to the essential puzzle of quantum mechanics utterly transforms how we think about space and time. His reconciling of quantum mechanics with Einstein’s theory of relativity changes, well, everything. Most physicists haven’t even recognized the uncomfortable truth: physics has been in crisis since 1927. Quantum mechanics has always had obvious gaps—which have come to be simply ignored. Science popularizers keep telling us how weird it is, how impossible it is to understand. Academics discourage students from working on the "dead end" of quantum foundations. Putting his professional reputation on the line with this audacious yet entirely reasonable book, Carroll says that the crisis can now come to an end. We just have to accept that there is more than one of us in the universe. There are many, many Sean Carrolls. Many of every one of us. Copies of you are generated thousands of times per second. The Many Worlds Theory of quantum behavior says that every time there is a quantum event, a world splits off with everything in it the same, except in that other world the quantum event didn't happen. Step-by-step in Carroll's uniquely lucid way, he tackles the major objections to this otherworldly revelation until his case is inescapably established. Rarely does a book so fully reorganize how we think about our place in the universe. We are on the threshold of a new understanding—of where we are in the cosmos, and what we are made of.
Summary of Sean Carroll's Something Deeply Hidden by Everest Media, Pdf
Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Quantum mechanics is the heart and soul of modern physics, and it is used in everything from astrophysics to particle physics. It is the most comprehensive view of reality we have, and it is not magic. #2 The world is fundamentally intelligible, and we have something of a mental block when it comes to quantum mechanics. We need to overcome this, and teach students that quantum mechanics is just a list of rules that we use to make predictions. #3 The first is that quantum mechanics should be understandable, even if we’re not there yet. It is unique among physical theories in drawing an apparent distinction between what we see and what really is. But this challenge isn’t insuperable, and if we free our minds from certain old-fashioned and intuitive ways of thinking, we find that quantum mechanics isn’t hopelessly mystical or inexplicable. #4 The third message is that all this matters, and not just for the integrity of science. The success of the existing adequate but not perfectly coherent framework of quantum mechanics shouldn’t blind us to the fact that there are circumstances under which such an approach simply isn’t up to the task.
Quantum entanglement is a quantum mechanical phenomenon in which the quantum states of two or more objects have to be described concerning each other, even though the individual objects may be spatially separated. This leads to correlations between observable physical properties of the systems. The satellite, called Micius, could detect the quantum levels of photons that these same scientists would fire from the ground soon thereafter. Making history, this satellite created the proper means for a quantum network that reaches from space to the ground, the farthest-reaching ever. Entanglement is an invisible art, the identical photons interacting within optical fibers, lost in space and time. This fact limits the distance over which scientists can test entanglement or merely detect it. The book discusses the following topics: -The basic physical explanation of entanglement theory -How it fits into the larger "Quantum Revolution" -The causes for doubt in the quantum physicist community -The proof of the theory's functionality -Supporting and contradicting theories -The innovative technologies which exist as a result of the theory -How this theory explains the theory of consciousness -The philosophical ideologies in play -The difference between the classical physics world and the quantum physics world -The mathematics involved in quantum entanglement -How to detangle the entanglement theory
In the second book of this already internationally acclaimed series, Sean Carroll, the most trusted explainer of the most mind-boggling concepts, digs deep into matter itself. What is the universe made of? In his quest to redefine the “popular” treatment of the biggest ideas in the universe, Sean Carroll is creating a profoundly new approach to physics and math as reviewer after reviewer has attested. Adventuring in the math of fields, he now intrepidly guides readers into the fantastic depths of The Standard Model of particle physics illuminating the mysteries of quantum reality. The universe is made of atoms and Sean Carroll explains exactly what that means and how we know it.
This is a printed Edition for the 4th book in the series ''Quantum Physics free of Folklore''. Besides lack of consensus among scientists/philosophers, there is passion and contention when interpreting Quantum Theory vis à vis our notion of REALITY. This book presents a novel interpretation, which is sharply distinguished from the Copenhagen Interpretation and the Many-Worlds Interpretation defended by Sean Carroll in his recent book ''Something Deeply Hidden''. In 2013, the camera in the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft captured Saturn''s rings plus our ''pale blue dot'' in the same frame (book''s cover). At 1.2 million km near Saturn, an inanimate piece of silicon 1.4 billion km afar encoded our planet''s existence. Remarkably, we were not the observers but the observed! Without our knowledge or volition, reflected light from Earth ''kicked'' Cassini''s image sensor. In turn, a digital representation of the image was transmitted back, ''kicking'' the antennas on our planet. Whether those numbers reached Earth or not, the REALITY of our cosmic home was already ''etched'' into the piece of silicon until its demise in 2017. This book''s objective is to deeply understand what the 100-year philosophical struggle regarding REALITY is all about. In the process, we will learn that: 1) Through sunglasses and a TV set, complex probability amplitude and phase for the state of a single micro-object seems natural to explain the macro-phenomena of intensity and interference. Born''s probability rule is thereby justified. The Principle of Uncertainty is unrelated to measurement, uncertainty, and knowledge. The probability distribution for a physical attribute is far more fundamental than the values the attribute can adopt. 2) The notion of quantum spin is related to the Zeeman Effect and the Stern-Gerlach Experiment. Considering a physical interaction as an ordinary measurement is one of the main reasons behind the hogwash surrounding the so-called ''measurement problem''. The real spin property is the probability distribution of its two values, not the values themselves. 3) Schrödinger''s Wave Mechanics and its Born''s probabilistic interpretation have profound philosophical implications: locality in the configuration space implies nonlocality in our physical space. The miscalled ''interference of probabilities'' is related to decoherence, to the reduction of the wavefunction, and to REALITY. 4) The Cauchy-Schwarz Inequality in complex vector spaces leads directly to the ''Principle of Uncertainty'', proving it is not a Principle but a theorem and has nothing to do with the micro-object being disturbed, with measurement errors, or how much knowledge is attainable upon observation. 5) The real property of a qubit is the probability distribution of its values. When a 2-qubit system is in the singlet state, an event involving one qubit does influence the state of the entangled qubit at a distant location -- even if the two events are space-like. Quantum computers promise a novel kind of parallelism, with computational speed exponentially increasing with the number of qubits. A novel approach to safeguard confidential information was critically needed, and the solution turned out to be Quantum Cryptography. 6) A deep understanding of the EPR paper is crucial to grasp the century-long dispute about REALITY. Preconceptions regarding what a physical property is, the Principle of Locality, and the meaning of the ''Uncertainty Principle'' populate the EPR paper. EPR conflates the joint reality of two noncommutative physical properties with ''predictability'' and ''measurability'' of their values. EPR believed the wavefunction did not provide a complete description of REALITY. They believed that such a theory was possible. Einstein was right: such a theory is in fact possible... at the immense cost of his being proven wrong on other front: any such theory must entail his worst nightmare (nonlocality)!
Celiac Disease (Updated 4th Edition) by Peter H.R. Green, M.D.,Rory Jones Pdf
From Dr. Peter H. R. Green, internationally renowned expert on celiac disease and director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, and medical author Rory Jones, an updated fourth edition of the definitive book on celiac disease, one of the most underdiagnosed autoimmune diseases in the U.S. Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic is an indispensable guidebook for anyone with celiac disease as well as for those with gluten intolerance or food sensitivities on a gluten-free diet. Since the last edition in 2016, scientific advances have changed what we know about the disease, how it is diagnosed and treated, and the long-term effect of a gluten-free diet on the brain and body. Celiac disease is a hereditary autoimmune condition that damages the lining of the small intestine so that it cannot properly absorb food. Without essential nutrients, the entire body begins to suffer. The disease is triggered by gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. The only “cure” for the disease is a life-long gluten-free diet. The disease affects nearly 1 in every 100 people in the United States—50 percent of whom remain undiagnosed and untreated. Although the primary target of injury is the small intestine, CD can and often does affect the entire body. Complications from the disease can include infertility, liver disease, osteoporosis, anemia, and other autoimmune diseases (such as Type 1 diabetes and Thyroid disease), neurological conditions, and even cancer. This updated fourth edition includes the latest information on CD, gluten intolerance, and gluten sensitivity. The important updates cover everything from new testing devices to advances in therapies that may help prevent gluten from entering and/or harming the intestines, to new research on the long-term effect of the gluten-free diet on our minds and bodies. And more!
In this brilliant, elegant book, renowned science writer Panek traces the creation of two new sciences--Einstein's cosmology and Freud's psychoanalysis--that have allowed us for more than a 100 years to explore previously unimaginable universes without and within.
This “fun, brain-twisting book . . . will make you think” as it explores more than 75 paradoxes in mathematics, philosophy, physics, and the social sciences (Sean Carroll, New York Times–bestselling author of Something Deeply Hidden) Paradox is a sophisticated kind of magic trick. A magician’s purpose is to create the appearance of impossibility, to pull a rabbit from an empty hat. Yet paradox doesn’t require tangibles, like rabbits or hats. Paradox works in the abstract, with words and concepts and symbols, to create the illusion of contradiction. There are no contradictions in reality, but there can appear to be. In Sleight of Mind, Matt Cook and a few collaborators dive deeply into more than 75 paradoxes in mathematics, physics, philosophy, and the social sciences. As each paradox is discussed and resolved, Cook helps readers discover the meaning of knowledge and the proper formation of concepts—and how reason can dispel the illusion of contradiction. The journey begins with “a most ingenious paradox” from Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance. Readers will then travel from Ancient Greece to cutting-edge laboratories, encounter infinity and its different sizes, and discover mathematical impossibilities inherent in elections. They will tackle conundrums in probability, induction, geometry, and game theory; perform “supertasks”; build apparent perpetual motion machines; meet twins living in different millennia; explore the strange quantum world—and much more.
Essays on Heidegger and Others by Richard Rorty Pdf
Richard Rortyʹs collected papers, written during the 1980s and now published in two volumes, take up some of the issues which divide Anglo-Saxon analytic philosophers and contemporary French and German philosophers and offer something of a compromise -- agreeing with the latter in their criticisms of traditional notions of truth and objectivity, but disagreeing with them over the political implications they draw from dropping traditional philosophical doctrines. The second volume pursues the themes of the first volume in the context of discussions of recent European philosophy focusing on the work of Heidegger and Derrida.
This book, written by a well-known scientist with a background in biophysics and biology brings together evidence from a range of disciplines to provide an acceptable explanation for the energetic exchanges that take place in all therapies. It addresses a growing interest in the field of mind-body medicine and the role of natural "energy forces" within the body in maintaining normal health and wellbeing. This in turn has lead to interest in how these energies or forces may be channelled to assist in healing and the restoration of normal health.
