If we were forced to describe the genre of this book we would probably mumble something like, “hmm, an educational popular science philosophy thriller with unexpected side effects.” Those side effects include a deep understanding of the workings of the universe, uncontrolled laughter, world peace, and some times even enlightenment.
It all starts when Bob, a hippie obsessed with spirituality, meets the witty nerd Alice. The resulting interaction is fun to read, entertaining and thought provoking. The first part of this book focuses on the map of reality of the physical world. We cover the dance of possibilities, Schrödinger’s cat, quantum entanglement, the Schrödinger equation and the influence of gossip. Then we transition to the map of reality about ourselves. We talk about the possibility wave of the universe, parallel universes, consciousness, the feeling of identity and the question of who or what we really are. This leads to a surprise that will shake your sense of reality completely.
Don’t worry, instead of dry textbook explanations, we provide insightful metaphors and beautiful illustrations to help you understand the crucial and important concepts without effort. For anyone who is only slightly interested in questions like “what is reality?”, “who am I?” and “what happens when we die?”, this is a must-read.
