Ok Einstein

I'm reading a great book right now, Brian Greenes The Fabric Of The Cosmos which is all about "string theory". If you're one of those people that always asks "why?" then you'll love this book. It's really fascinating. Now I'm one of those people that's into quantum physics, believes in parallel universes, thinks black holes and anti matter explain everything, that time travel is indeed possible and that for the most part, human beings merely exist and do not make a difference in their existence.

Once you read this book, it puts you, your life into a different perspective. Einsteins theory of relativity most simply stated is that everything that occurs is relative to something else. Or at its most fundamental level - if this, then that. If you're into the nature of the universe. Then buy this book.

Brian Greene is a remarkable man, a brilliant educator who is able to explain, in layman's terms, the world as we see it, live it, in the context of the cosmos. He was on Letterman the other night and absolutely articulate, funny and a regular guy - with an IQ of 175 or so.

It's one of those books that is a bit tough is the beginning but then you're are absolutely entranced with what he has to say, what he proves.
