Time Reborn:
From the Crisis in Physics to
the Future of the Universe
with Lee Smolin

Hosted by Stephen Brockwell
"The strongest dose of clarity in written form to have come along in decades. The implications go far beyond physics, to economics, politics, and personal philosophy. Time Reborn places reality above theory in stronger and clearer terms than ever before, and the result is a path to better theory and potentially to a better society as well. Will no doubt be remembered as one of the essential books of the 21st century.

Join us for an insightful investigation into the nature of time itself. Since the ancients, physicists and philosophers have argued that time is not real, that our experience of time passing is just a human illusion in a timeless universe operating on predetermined laws. 

 

Lee Smolin, a senior faculty member and founder of the Perimeter Institute in Theoretical Physics and the bestselling author of The Trouble with Physics and Three Roads To Quantum Gravity, brilliantly shows how this thinking came about, and makes the bold case that time may in fact be the only thing that is real.
