Einstein's Intuition By Thad Roberts
Hardcover: $104.95
Ships in 6-8 business days.
(7 Ratings)
Presented in clear and accessible language with wonderfully supportive graphics, Roberts offers the reader a voyage through the development of human knowledge. He then examines the outstanding... More > mysteries of modern physics, the phenomena that lie outside the borders of our current understanding and suggests that the next step in our intellectual journey is to treat the vacuum of space as a superfluid composed of interactive quanta. With this proposition Roberts imbues the vacuum with fractal geometry and opens the door to explaining the mysteries of physics geometrically. Roberts' model has been praised for offering an intuitively accessible picture of eleven dimensions and for powerfully extending the insight of general relativity, while offering us access to the underlying deterministic dynamics of quantum mechanics. That remarkably simple picture explains the mysteries of modern physics in a way that is fully commensurate with Einstein's intuition and generates several testable predictions.< Less

Hidden Scents By Allen Barkkume
Paperback: $9.97
Ships in 3-5 business days
Hidden Scents will vaporize you into an aromatic molecule, tickling the brain-fingers in your nose. A cacophony of receptor neurons activating and inhibiting, you become a recognized pattern and... More > burst towards the limbic superhighway of the primitive organism. You are an emotion, a virtual body-state stored in memory, coming to life once again in the act of perception. In a breath, you are exhaled, washed away into the lexicographical maelstrom of the Language of Smell. Hidden Scents explores our consensual reality, and reveals its inherent ambiguity. On the surface, however, it is a book about the olfactive system, not only of the human but of human culture. In the concluding series of essays, olfaction is used as a paradigm for navigating issues on the threshold of public discourse: space and dimensionality, artificial intelligence, quantum theory, and the future of the internet. Be warned - you might never smell the same again.< Less
