Beyond the Big Bang: Ancient Myth and the Science of Continuous Creation
|Author||Paul A LaViolette|
This book hinges on the idea that we are on the verge of rediscovering an ancient knowledge. That "philosopher's stone" of physics - a grand unifying theory. The author begins by explaining this theory - a continually transmuting ether of existence, akin to the Dirac Sea of virtual particles in quantum mechanics. A theory that describes how matter can be created from fluctuations in chaotic flux, and links gravity and electromagnetic forces. He then continues by providing evidence of how this theory was known long ago, and what implications it has for science and our future.
It does not rely, as one reviewer put it, on the "tired light" cosmology. It, instead, creates a living framework for the universe in which the Doppler red shift could also, to my mind, be explained by Hadrons putting on weight as they get older. This would also explain the "high red-shift, low red-shift at the same distance anomaly".
Although some of the links to mythology verge on the "very tenuous", there does seem to be overwhelming evidence that our ancestors were more intellectually advanced than we are led to believe. Not least, the "instantly civilized" Egyptians, who appeared overnight with a complete socio-economic structure, fully developed written language and advanced scientific knowledge.
It is truly refreshing to find a mind that is not blinkered by the views of his peers and seeks to explore new pastures. Pastures that have not been specifically designed to keep the herd happy, and which the herd is equally scared to stray from.
If you are scientifically inclined, with an open mind and a desire to understand everything, then BUY THIS BOOK!
