Modern physics has revealed the universe as a much stranger place than we could have imagined. The puzzle at the centre of our knowledge of the universe is time. Michael Lockwood takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the nature of things. He investigates philosophical questions about past, present, and future, our experience of time, and the possibility of time travel. And he provides the most careful, lively, and up-to-date introduction to the physics of time and the structure of the universe. His aim is not just to boggle the mind, but to lead the reader towards an understanding of the science and philosophy. Things will never seem the same again after a voyage through The Labyrinth of Time. '... a model of balance and clarity' (Paul Davies, Times Higher Education Supplement)

In this lively comedy of love and money in sixteenth-century Venice, Bassanio wants to impress the wealthy heiress Portia, but lacks the necessary funds. He turns to his merchant friend, Antonio, who is forced to borrow from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. When Antonio's business falters, repayment becomes impossible, and by the terms of the loan agreement, Shylock is able to demand a pound of Antonio's flesh. Portia cleverly intervenes, and all ends well (except of course for Shylock).

An investigation into the materialist madness of Darwinian views of evolution. Further investigation of modern quantum and evolutionary-developmental discoveries shows the Darwinian evolutionary worldview is incorrect, and a non-theistic Intelligent Design operating from the quantum level is correct. This leads to the exploration of the view that the universe is a self-perceiving organism employing sentient beings as its perceiving agents.

The main focus of this volume is the question: is spacetime nothing more than a mathematical space (which describes the evolution in time of the ordinary three-dimensional world) or is it a mathematical model of a real four-dimensional world with time entirely given as the fourth dimension? The book contains fourteen invited papers which either directly address the main question of the nature of spacetime or explore issues related to it.

The landscape of this novel in storiesùJoseph Cardinale's first book-length work of fictionùis as familiar as childhood yet beguilingly surreal. Whether any person is the same from one moment to the next is perhaps the book's main question. In prose as spare as it is meticulous, The Silcof the Universe conjures an elegant labyrinth of time, space, and memory, in which a wavering self, a self on the verge of becoming nothing, seeks a safe haven from the throes of near-religious ecstasy. It is a debut work that is inviting, perplexing, and bold. "Joseph Cardinale writes from the grandest locations of human life with an enormously endearing humility and compassion. The stories in The Size of the Universe find us as we are, alone in a universe of sea and sun, animals and fishes, bodies, minds, and hearts we strive to meaningfully engage. There is humor here, intelligence, pathos, an honest, unapologetic pursuit of the holy. This book will reward its reader with the moving truths only the best fiction permits."-Sam Michel, author of Under the Light "Cardinale writes from the minor place where spiritus meets corpus. He has seen with open eyes, and he has seen (perhaps more) with them closed. We have in Joseph a writer who truly has something he needs to say. You would be wise to listen."ùGiancarlo Ditrapano, editor of New York Tyrant "These stories are brainy marvels, quietly astonishing. Joseph Cardinale plumbs the miraculousùtheology, astronomy, the history of scienceùwithout ever forgetting ordinary blood and flesh, whose frailty he measures with uncanny tenderness."ùLent Zumas, author of Farewell Navigator

The story of the unlikely friendship between the two physicists who fundamentally recast the notion of time and history In 1939, Richard Feynman, a brilliant graduate of MIT, arrived in John Wheeler's Princeton office to report for duty as his teaching assistant. A lifelong friendship and enormously productive collaboration was born, despite sharp differences in personality. The soft-spoken Wheeler, though conservative in appearance, was a raging nonconformist full of wild ideas about the universe. The boisterous Feynman was a cautious physicist who believed only what could be tested. Yet they were complementary spirits. Their collaboration led to a complete rethinking of the nature of time and reality. It enabled Feynman to show how quantum reality is a combination of alternative, contradictory possibilities, and inspired Wheeler to develop his landmark concept of wormholes, portals to the future and past. Together, Feynman and Wheeler made sure that quantum physics would never be the same again.
