In his latest book, Carroll takes on the holy grail of modern physics – reconciling quantum mechanics with Einstein’s general relativity, his theory of curved spacetime. Carroll argues that the refusal to face up to the mysteries of quantum mechanics has blinded people, and that spacetime and gravity naturally emerge from a deeper reality called the wave function. Yes, we’re saying the multiverse (scientifically speaking, the Many-Worlds theory) is real!
Carroll is author of The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself and other books and is host of the Mindscape podcast. This is a rare opportunity to hear one of our top scientists bringing to life one of the most important theories of the day.
