The View From the Center of the Universe: Discovering Our Extraordinary Place in the Cosmos. So what kind of meaning do Primack and Abrams find in the cosmos? Their book answers this question through a totally engaging and very readable exploration of 'the new universe' explained by quantum physics and contemporary astrophysics. The View from the Center of the Universe goes a long way in that direction, and it should be read by anyone, not just scientists, who worry about the human condition.

Cosmic Acceleration and M-Theory1. All flat cosmologies for a simple exponential potential are found explicitly. It is noted that tran- sient acceleration is generic, and unavoidable for 'flux' compactifications

After a four-century rupture between science and the questions of value and meaning, this groundbreaking book presents an explosive and potentially life-altering idea: if the world could agree on a shared creation story based on modern cosmology and biology—a story that has just become available—it would redefine our relationship with Planet Earth and benefit all of humanity, now and into the distant future.

Written in eloquent, accessible prose and illustrated in magnificent color throughout, including images from innovative simulations of the evolving universe, this book brings the new scientific picture of the universe to life. It interprets what our human place in the cosmos may mean for us and our descendants. It offers unique insights into the potential use of this newfound knowledge to find solutions to seemingly intractable global problems such as climate change and unsustainable growth. And it explains why we need to "think cosmically, act globally" if we're going to have a long-term, prosperous future on Earth.

Brilliant, everyone should read this! I had to read several parts more than once, but all in all, it was explained simply enough for a non-scientist like me.

Judge a book by its cover because this book does address some of the biggest questions we humans face. Try this for size....

"There is a gaping hole in modern thinking that may never have existed in human society before. It's so common that scarcely anyone notices it, while global catastrophes of natural and human origin plague our planet and personal crises of existential confusion plague our private lives. The hole is this: we have no meaningful sense of how we and our fellow humans fit into the big picture."

The book states the case for needing a coherent, believable picture of the universe that applies to us all. Thus bringing meaning. Instead we fall into crazy group thinking - as Friedrich Nietzsche's famous epigram explains, 'Madness in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule.' This is why so many of us shy away from the inconvenient truth, preferring a reassuring lie.

Searching for a story that unifies, religion of course plays a part as it so often does. In fact given that (in the words of Joseph Campbell) 'The old gods are dead or dying.' the search for the story is more relevant now than it ever has been.

Perhaps the search for our origin story (that will no doubt be embedded in metaphor) will create our connection. Then we can answer the meta question - meaning of the universe anyone?

An excellent introduction to a revolutionary and liberating notion of the special place of humanity in the universe.

This is a 'must read' for any thoughtful person
????????????????????????
A book I strongly urge every literate man, woman and child living on this planet today to read. At last a plausible unifying truth of what, where and when we are within the universe and it's implications for our responsibility for the decisions we make as one remarkably unique human species - to preserve our planet while sustaining the well being of humankind. Regardless of political agendas, race, culture or religious faiths, this scientific evidenced based unifying story can serve as an under carriage for all of humanity to rest upon. And just perhaps it may soften the superficial divisions (geo-political/socio-economic) our species has constructed, enabling us to make informed large-scale decisions as one human tribe. This book promotes a world wide paradigm shift, that could one day heal our spirits, dissolve our continual conflicts, and link us together in a cohesive cosmic consciousness, allowing us to maximize our potential as a species and thereby that of the universe itself.
Uaha
Cutting edge science explained in laymans terms without being patronising.

I enjoyed the book well written and easily understood. essential reading for anyone wanting to increase their knowledge. makes us aware of importance of human life
Maybe this is the answer. Actually it probably is the answer but how to get people to read it and live it. It is wonderful full of facts and actionable ideas that should be read by everyone. How to accomplish this though? This should be read by everyone beyond the age of 12.
