If Hawking was right, black holes would render the Universe fundamentally unpredictable and the foundations of physics would crumble. Rather we might conclude that the language of computing is well suited to describing the algorithmic unfolding of the cosmos.

But even though this it's hard to read, I think we can see through these theories from a mathematical point of view. So no problem, except that according to Einstein's theory of general relativity, you can also ask the question, what does that look like from the perspective of the book or an astronaut falling in? Imagine that a pair of these particles, which would have come into existence and disappeared again, they can be configured such that one's on the inside of the horizon and one is on the outside of the horizon. The role of information science in describing black holes may be pointing us towards a novel description of Nature, but this does not imply we were programmed.This is a beautifully add masterfully written synopsis of the universe as a whole tying together, very complicated theories and ideologies into something readable, and more importantly, understandable. Highly recommended for educated readers who can kepe up with a little hard science that hasn't been overly diluted for general consumption.

In short, I really liked this book, but wished it had more thorough explanations, and maybe a clearer differentiation of purely theoretical from “verified”, but that might be the noob in me talking.In “Black Holes” some topics are only brushed upon, and I wish the authors provided a deeper understanding through metaphors and analogies, which they're great at.

Now, as a general rule, whenever someone produces a graph I reach for my revolver, but I imagine even those readers who are more inclined to jump through the various mathematical hurdles Cox and Forshaw erect will find them a bit excessive. But for a while, I got hung up on proposed visual observations in the book and therefore somewhere had misunderstood. It started off very basic, simple enough for most educated readers to follow along, but around 30% it really got into the science of black holes and the space around them. You said at the beginning of our conversation that this new idea of reality in a black hole is part black hole geometry and part quantum physics.Black holes are places in space and time where the laws of gravity, quantum physics and thermodynamics collide. All of this disregards entirely that I am already sort of tied up with a pseudo-career in a different scientific discipline and do not relish the thought of attending university again.
