Book Review: Quantum Physics for Hippies
Are you a nerd? Are you a hippie? Are you, by any chance, a hippie-nerd? Are you intrigued by the scientific and mathematical works of Einstein, Schrodinger, & Hawkings?
Are you a sci-fi fan? Do you ever wonder if you’ve jumped into a different dimension—an alternate reality? Do you ever wish you could? Maybe, you’re a fairly neutral human being who is just plain curious.
Perhaps you are none of these things. Perhaps you are all of them—somewhere. Would you like to find out?
Now that I’ve gotten your attention. . .
Quantum Physics for Hippies, written by Ph.D.’s Dr. Lukas Neumeier and Dr. James Douglas, experts in the field of quantum physics, is a must-read even if you never really thought about quantum physics. The fact is, knowledge is growing and changing our world, whether we understand it or not.
The realm of quantum physics has already provided us with unimaginable (back in the day) technology and will continue to do so. Quantum mechanics leading to the development of computers, for instance, is just one example, but what about a topic close to my heart?
Quantum Physics & its Role in Environmental Issues
Have I “sparked” your interest further?
Neumeier and Douglas bring quantum physics to life in this fanciful, entertaining, enlightening, quirky and witty, exchange between a nerd, obsessed with quantum physics, and a hippie, obsessed with personal enlightenment and growth. Science and philosophy combine in a provocative, mind-bending adventure into the physical and spiritual realms and their relationship to each other. Even consciousness and the role that it potentially plays in our reality are explored (albeit in a rather sci-fi twist).
No college lecture on the subject could ever come close to this beautifully illustrated, entertaining exploration of the topic.
Be prepared to come away from this experience with a whole new perspective on the meaning of life and the universe as we know it.
Complete disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and I am one who would completely look forward to similar books from these scientists, free or otherwise.
