Overview
This book seeks for straightforward, understandable common-sense explanations to the problems of science. We go from math and topology to Physics and Chemistry directly to biology and Psychology. Math is used to understand the concepts rigorously while imagination helps get rid of the mysticism and there are Layman's sections throughout the book.
Description
This is a book about math and physics and how biology and psychology come directly from them. In physics we will cover Newtonian Mechanics, Gravitational Waves, Special Relativity, Electromagnetism, Orbitals, Quantum Mechanics, Multiverses, the Calabi-Yau manifold as a template for the brain and we will also cover Topology. They will be straightforward and simple as well as mathematically rigorous. Imagination will help get rid of mysticism and there are Layman's sections throughout the book. Additionally we will cover the direct applications to Biology and Psychology using cells not made of atoms. We will start with simple cells that do simple things and later look at cells that do math and programming and have brains and sensory organs. We will show that these cells and their thoughts come straight out of Physics which comes straight out of Topology. We do this to understand nature better. These things will be done in all of the first 3 dimensions and strangely enough we will have as a rule that time is an illusion; however that simplification will help us understand a great deal better. Flatland is a novel by Edwin A. Abbott in 1884. A lot has happened since then. We can safely talk about the 1st, 2nd and 3rd dimensions with autonomy because almost all of our content here is original to this book. The movie looks promising but again this is new content. Each section will be explained in detail followed by "In Layman's terms."
About the author
Eric Eliason grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and went to BYU with a Master's Degree in Mathematics and a Minor in Physics. He has made three computer games recently; one is a maze game of squares where sometimes you can tunnel under squares, one is a different way to play checkers that you can play against a computer which is quite unbeatable, and one is a card game where the deck is laid out staggered and you try to break off pieces of it. He wants to thank you for buying or reading his book(s) and hopes that parts of it might come in handy someday, that it rescues you from boredom, or helps you feel fulfilled. A special thanks goes out to his family and Ricky Sauquey who helped out. He used to be Raelian. Eric will be baptized back into the LDS Church soon.
