Einstein and the Quantum: The Quest of the Valiant Swabian
A. Douglas Stone
Princeton University Press
Einstein and the Quantum reveals for the first time the full significance of Albert Einstein's contributions to quantum theory. Einstein famously rejected quantum mechanics, observing that God does not play dice. But, in fact, he thought more about the nature of atoms, molecules, and the emission and absorption of light--the core of what we now know as quantum theory--than he did about relativity. A compelling blend of physics, biography, and ...

Quantum: Einstein, Bohr, and the Great Debate about the Nature of Reality
W. W. Norton & Company
“One of the best guides yet to the central conundrums of modern physics.”—John Banville Quantum theory is weird. As Niels Bohr said, if you weren’t shocked by quantum theory, you didn’t really understand it. For most people, quantum theory is synonymous with mysterious, impenetrable science. And in fact for many years it was equally baffling for scientists themselves. In this tour de force of science history, Manjit Kumar gives a ...

Teaming with Microbes: A Gardener's Guide to the Soil Food Web
Timber Press, Incorporated
Smart gardeners know that soil is anything but an inert substance. Healthy soil is teeming with life-not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. When we use chemical fertilizers, we injure the microbial life that sustains healthy plants, and thus become increasingly dependent on an arsenal of artificial substances, many of them toxic to humans as well as other forms of life. But there ...

The General Theory of Information: Origin of Truth and Hope (Volume 1)
Dr. Christian Bach
Dr. Salvatore Belardo
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
The purpose of this book is to articulate a general theory of information, and to define its two key concepts: nonlocal information and nonlocality. The scientific validity of the theory is derived from the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) experiment, and the fact that time equals zero at the speed of light. An analysis of information processes in the EPR-experiment reveals properties that serve as the basis of a novel nonlocal mindset. A nonlocal ...

Unconventional Flying Objects: A Scientific Analysis
Paul R. Hill
Hampton Roads Publishing
Paul Hill was a well-respected NASA scientist when, in the early 1950s, he had a UFO sighting. Soon after, he built the first flying platform and was able to duplicate the UFO's tilt-to-control maneuvers. Official policy, however, prevented him from proclaiming his findings. "I was destined," says Hill, "to remain as unidentified as the flying objects." For the next twenty-five years, Hill acted as an unofficial clearing house at NASA, ...
