BOOK EXCERPT:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER When and how did the universe begin? Why are we here? What is the nature of reality? Is the apparent “grand design” of our universe evidence of a benevolent creator who set things in motion—or does science offer another explanation? In this startling and lavishly illustrated book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about these and other abiding mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by brilliance and simplicity. According to quantum theory, the cosmos does not have just a single existence or history. The authors explain that we ourselves are the product of quantum fluctuations in the early universe, and show how quantum theory predicts the “multiverse”—the idea that ours is just one of many universes that appeared spontaneously out of nothing, each with different laws of nature. They conclude with a riveting assessment of M-theory, an explanation of the laws governing our universe that is currently the only viable candidate for a “theory of everything”: the unified theory that Einstein was looking for, which, if confirmed, would represent the ultimate triumph of human reason.

BOOK EXCERPT:

When and how did the universe begin? Why are we here? Is the apparent 'grand design' of our universe evidence for a benevolent creator who set things in motion? Or does science offer another explanation? In The Grand Design, the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe is presented in language marked by both brilliance and simplicity. Model dependent realism, the multiverse, the top-down theory of cosmology, and the unified M-theory - all are revealed here. This is the first major work in nearly a decade by one of the world's greatest thinkers. A succinct, startling and lavishly illustrated guide to discoveries that are altering our understanding and threatening some of our most cherished belief systems, The Grand Design is a book that will inform - and provoke - like no other.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Along with Caltech physicist Mlodinow (The Drunkard's Walk), University of Cambridge cosmologist Hawking (A Brief History of Time) deftly mixes cutting-edge physics to answer three key questions-- Why is there something rather than nothing? Why do we exist? Why this particular set of laws and not some other?-- and explains that scientists are approaching what is called "M-theory," a collection of overlapping theories (including string theory) that fill in many (but not all) the blank spots in quantum physics. This collection is known as the "Grand Unified Field Theories."

BOOK EXCERPT:

The advent of color, big musicals, the studio system, and the beginning of institutionalized censorship made the thirties the defining decade for Hollywood. The year 1939, celebrated as "Hollywood's greatest year," saw the release of such memorable films as Gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, and Stagecoach. It was a time when the studios exercised nearly absolute control over their product as well as over such stars as Bette Davis, Clark Gable, and Humphrey Bogart. In this fifth volume of the award-winning series History of the American Cinema, Tino Balio examines every aspect of the filmmaking and film exhibition system as it matured during the Depression era.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Increasingly, scientific discoveries are revealing similarities with spiritual concepts, but the common basis of science and spirituality has so far escaped a logical explanation. This book describes how we can understand this common basis if we do something as simple as change our point of view. After that, it becomes a matter of common sense, a brand new type of common sense that is available to everyone, not just scientists. This new common sense, called "Holistic Logic" produces surprising and convincing results when applied to dimensions that transcend our three dimensional world. Holistic Logic leads to conclusions that agree with the teachings of Christ, Vedic Scripture, and the tenets of Buddhist philosophy. Even those unschooled in science can understand how Holistic Logic holds true for discoveries in Quantum Physics and Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Holistic Logic explains spiritual reality in a rational way, using the laws of multi-dimensional reality, much in the same way we explain physical reality with laws of physics. This may well be the breakthrough that Mankind has been seeking for centuries. Holistic Logic may finally have made the connection between the science of matter and the world of spirit. In the future, this connection may prove to be even more significant than that event some 400 years ago when Humankind first understood that the earth was not the center of the universe. Today, the world is desperate for a change. As humans, we are struggling to cope with the ever increasing problems that we are causing in our eco-systems and in ourselves. We are recklessly depleting our oil reserves, we are destroying the lungs of our planet by cutting down the rainforests, and have set in motion a pattern of global warming that can have disastrous results for us and our children. As individuals, we feel that we are at the mercy of random events. Some of us are maimed or murdered, some of us develop fatal diseases, and many of us know disappointment and guilt. We don't understand the forces that drive events nor the apparent indifference of a God who expects obedience but rains misfortune down upon us. We are powerless in the face of tragedies like that which occurred on 9/11/01 Now we have the tools that will help us to avoid destruction and turn the whole situation around. We have the ability to understand and implement the laws of spiritual reality. We have a method that will help us to understand The Grand Design and to create the kind of world that we want. We have Holistic Logic. This book explains the basics of Holistic Logic, citing 10 "Holon Principles" that, when taken together, comprise the Holistic Logic System. With the aid of clear practical examples and many illustrations, the reader will understand the building blocks of physical and spiritual reality, the mysterious union of the Whole and its Parts.

Learn About the Mysteries of the Universe. Humans have long wondered about the mysteries of the universe. When did the universe begin? Why are we here? What is the grand design of our universe? In the past, humanity explained the world’s natural phenomena, like rain, thunder, eclipses, and more as the work of various gods. Today, scientists have made incredible leaps in understanding exactly how our world works. Throughout The Grand Design, authors Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow explain the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe in a way that everyone can understand. Using simple language, some of today’s most brilliant minds aim to help anyone understand just how far our scientific development has come as well as explain what we still don’t know. As you read, you’ll learn whether or not free will exists, why our reality isn't necessarily the only reality, and how we humans are incredibly lucky to be alive.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Sooner or later questions such as “Who/and what am I? Where did I come from? How can I find meaning in my life? How can I reduce the pain of self-realisation? What will happen to me when I die?” begin to niggle at each of us. This book provides answers that come from a spirit being named SHEBAKA. The Grand Design books, of which there are five volumes, explore life in all its aspects both in the physical world and in spirit. Inter alia, they explain how we came to inhabit physical bodies and what happens to us when we die; and they provide facts, concepts and suggestions designed to help us, in cooperation with our guides/guardian angels if we so wish, to find ever increasing happiness and fulfillment in our expression.
