Reality Is Not What It Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity

Carlo Rovelli

The man who makes physics sexy . . . the scientist theyre calling the next Stephen Hawking. --The Times Magazine From the New York Times-bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and the forthcoming The Order of Time, a closer look at the mind-bending nature of the universe. What are the elementary ingredients of the world? Do time and space exist? And what exactly is reality? In elegant and accessible prose, theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli leads us on a wondrous journey from Democritus to Einstein, from Michael Faraday to gravitational waves, and from classical physics to his own work in quantum gravity. As he shows us how the idea of reality has evolved over time, Rovelli offers deeper explanations of the theories he introduced so concisely in Seven Brief Lessons on Physics. Rovelli invites us to imagine a marvelous world where space breaks up into tiny grains, time disappears at the smallest scales, and black holes are waiting to explode--a vast universe still largely undiscovered.

In the morning, the world is a curved spacetime where everything is continuous; in the afternoon, the world is a flat one where discrete quanta of energy leap and interact. Carlo Rovelli.

Newton knew that his equations do not describe all the forces that exist in nature. There are forces other than gravity that act upon bodies. Things don’t move just when they fall. The first problem left open by Newton was to understand the other forces that determine what happens around us. T
