    The Unreal Universe is an inquiry into the realness of reality as reflected in the basic assumptions of physics. It examines these assumptions using metaphysical views of reality. More than a philosophical inquiry, the book actually applies these views in explaining certain astrophysical phenomena such as Gamma-ray bursts and symmetric radio sources.   Maps of relic light emitted shortly after the universe was born tell us that baby space-time grew exponentially in the blink of an eye before settling into a more sedate rate of : Victoria Jaggard.

      The Universe in the Light of Modern Physics by Max Planck, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(8). By focusing on the nonmathematical assumptions underlying some of the most significant events in modern science, Metaphysical Experiments offers a critical history of contemporary physics that demystifies such concepts as the universe, particles, singularity, gravity, blackbody radiation, the speed of light, wave/particle duality, natural.

So starting with the basics, why electric and why universe. And the interesting thing is that the history of modern physics is pretty much tied to the 20th century history – to the rise of. The comparison between music and physics rests on the fact that sound is a wave with similarities to the wave phenomena that underlie modern physics.

That observation sometimes yields illuminating results—e.g., the notion that the early universe contained tiny density fluctuations that looked like ,light-year-long sound waves and 5/5(2).

Author(s): J. Gunion and U.C. Scientists expected the expansion of the universe to “stretch the light,” and the temperature to be very low, so cosmic background radiation should be long-wavelength and low energy.

The answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, according to Douglas Adams’ excellent book, is The reality, it turns out, is not quite so simple.

Questions about what the universe is, how it began, how it works and where it is going have exercised the minds of some of the smartest scientists of the 20th Century. Where Traditional Physics Stops We're about to move into the modern age of physics. In the early 's, scientists began examining the basis of matter, space, and time.
