Four Laws That Drive The Universe, Peter Atkins
11 Peter Atkins Four Laws That Drive The Universe
Oxford University Press 234610 Oxford 2007 0199232369 / 9780199232369 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the sudden expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. They establish fundamental concepts such as temperature and heat, and reveal the arrow of time and even the nature of energy itself. Peter Atkins' powerful and compelling introduction explains what the laws are and how they work, using accessible language and virtually no mathematics. Guiding the reader from the Zeroth Law to the Third Law, he introduces the fascinating concept of entropy, and how it not only explains why your desk tends to get messier, but also how its unstoppable rise constitutes the engine of the universe. 130 pages.

What The Bleep Do We Know?: Discovering the Endless Possibilities for Altering Your Everyday Reality, William Arntz, Betsy Chasse, Mark Vicente
12 William Arntz, Betsy Chasse, Mark Vicente What The Bleep Do We Know?: Discovering the Endless Possibilities for Altering Your Everyday Reality
Health Communications 236962 USA 2005 075730334X / 9780757303340 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Gravity sometimes doesn't work. Some things are both waves and particles. . .at the same time. Electrons simply disappear . . . all the time. If the universe is this wild and unpredictable, so full of possibility, why are your thoughts about your own life so limited? Hundreds of years ago, science and religion split apart; they became antagonists in the great game of explanation and discovery. But science and religion are two sides of the same coin. They both help explain the universe, our place in the great plan and the meaning of our lives. In fact, they can only begin to do that adequately when they work together. What the Bleep Do We Know?!TM is a book of amazing science. With the help of more than a dozen research and theoretical scientists, it takes you through the looking glass of quantum physics into a universe that is more bizarre and alive than ever imagined. Then it takes you beyond, into the outer-inner edges of our scientific knowledge of consciousness, perception, body chemistry and brain structure. What is a thought made of? What is reality made of? And most importantly, how does a thought change the nature of reality? This science leads not just to the material world, but deep into the realm of spirituality. If observation affects the outcome, we aren't merely part of the universe, but participants in it. If thoughts are more than random neural firings, than consciousness is more than an anatomical accident. A higher power exists, but is it truly out there? Where is the dividing line between out there and in here? This is not a book of definitive answers. This is a book of mind stretching questions. It is a book that shows you not the path, but the endless possibilities. Do you think you have to go to the same job every day, do the same errands, think the same thoughts, feel the same way? Well, think again. 275 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Religion, Theology; Science & Technology; Science::Popular Science. ISBN: 075730334X.
