Physics of the Impossible

I frequently think of this book by Dr. Michio Kaku, Theoretical Physicist.  My interp is that it embraces the idea that the things that were once impossible are in fact possible today simply by the curious people who explored them.  They used their mathematical and theoretical expertise just as Dr. Kaku eloquently has done in this book, bringing the past into the present and the present into the future.  He also has written another favorite book of mine entitled, Parallel Worlds.

    I have read his works, too, he always stretches into areas that are more often than not viewed as the realm of science fiction, which makes for a good read.

    I am about to start in on a bookd called “I am a Strange Loop”, the title itself is enouch to make it worth checking out. It concerns itself with philosophy of mind and consciousness and I think is a followup to another book the author (Hofstadter) wrote in 79′ called “Gödel, Escher, Bach”.

    I picked up a few interesting titles I thought I would share, “Quantum – A Guide for the Perplexed” by Jim Al-Khalili and “The Ego Tunnel: The Science of the Mind and the Myth of Self” by Thomas Metzinger. I am trying to figure out which to read first, do I delve into an attempt at a layman’s definition of quantum mechanics or a set of philosophical discussions concerning consciousness? This might all be a little too heady for me, I had better throw something in between the two to break up the brain drain 🙂
