Cosmos and consciousness

£14.99

Product description

The book is in good condition. The cover has a little edge wear and a diagonal light crease across the top corner but is generally in very good condition. Internally the book is clean, tight and unmarked.

The subtitle of the book is "Quantum Computers, SuperStrings, Mysticism, C++ Programming, Egypt, Quarks, Mind-Body Problem, Aliens, Linguistics, and Turing Machines". This book presents many facets: it shows a new theory for the origin of the Egyptian ankh, a new view of the fundamental nature of the Universe, a new view of Elementary Particle Physics Theories as a Quantum Computer language, a model of Consciousness based on probabilistic computers, new theoretical approaches to Quantum Computers, and Quantum Computer languages described for the first time.
Stephen Blaha is an internationally known physicist with extensive interests in Science, the Arts and Technology. He has written, other than this highly regarded book on physics, consciousness and philosophy, a book on Science and Religion entitled The Reluctant Prophets, a book applying physics to the history of civilizations, and books on Java and C++ programming. He has also developed a mathematical theory of civilizations that is described in his book, The Life Cycle of Civilizations. He has served on the faculties of Cornell University, Yale University, Syracuse University and Williams College. He was also a Member of the Technical Staff at Bell Laboratories and a Director of Wang Laboratories. Dr. Blaha is noted for contributions to elementary particle theory and solid state physics theory as well as contributions to Computer Science. Among other achievements he was a co-discoverer of the "r potential" for heavy quark binding, first suggested the existence of topological structures in superfluid He-3, developed the first grammar-based formalism for quantum computers and applied it to elementary particle theories, and was a pioneer in UNIX development, database benchmarking, and Desktop Publishing.

Oxfam Books & Music Beeston

The Beeston books and music shop is situated near to Nottingham University, close to the city of Nottingham. There is a train station nearby.

There is a wide variety of music, including sheet music and a good selection of high quality classical, rock and pop vinyl.
