"From Eternity to Here" offers an expertly thorough exploration of the nature of time, covering a wide range of concepts in theoretical physics in exquisite detail. The major focus is on time's relation to thermodynamics and entropy, but Carroll goes above and beyond the basic considerations and takes the reader on a journey touching upon a plethora of mysteries in modern physics.
Next Book: From Eternity to Here – Sean Carroll
Carroll explores what our intuitive understanding of time is, and how physics in the form of relativity and thermodynamics offer a deeper understanding of how time's arrow arises. Beginning with the simple observation that eggs can be made into omelettes but omelettes can't easily be made into eggs, Carroll takes us on a scientific roller-coaster all the way to the multiverse.
Why We Exist (Thermodynamically Speaking)
I've seen it come up several times recently. For some reason it seems that many people think that the second law of thermodynamics is a major problem for our existence.
