Summary
"Many people believe that the laws of nature represent a deep, Platonic reality that goes beyond the material objects that are observed by eye and by advanced scientific instruments. Stenger maintains that reality may be simpler and less mysterious than most think. The quantum world only appears mysterious when forced to obey rules of everyday human experience. Stenger convincingly argues that, based on established principles of simplicity and symmetry, at its deepest level reality is literally timeless. Within this reality it is possible that many universes exist, each with structures and laws different from our own. Using language that is easily understood by the nonspecialist, Stenger elucidates these complex subjects with astounding clarity. The many illustrations also help make the book come alive in a manner that is more accessible to the educated lay reader."--BOOK JACKET
