Time One is a major contribution to the understanding of our universe. Author Colin Gillespie comes up with a strikingly simple answer to the most perplexing question of them all: How did the universe begin? Using forty-seven classic problems of philosophy and cosmology as clues, the narrator and a detective lead the reader to a single elegant solution that reveals the very instant time begins and explains how real time works. Time One explains exactly how the universe is constructed. It tackles the most important issues in physics and cosmology and its answers change everything. It is serious science, written as detective fiction, all in aid of helping the reader understand. It takes an iconoclastic look at contemporary physics, notably relativity, quantum mechanics and string theory. It connects the dots across centuries of philosophy, literature and religion. Its awesome scope and breadth, literary and scientific, and its new explanations of some of our most fundamental questions make Time One a must read for the curious.
