    Professor Brian Greene: The Twilight Of Time

    We humans like to think we’re exceptional beings, but just like trees, rocks and tabletops, we’re nothing but the products of physics, moulded by its laws. Yes, our ability to love, to regret, to build, to destroy, separates us from inanimate objects, but the reality is we’re just bags of particles, or as Professor Brian Greene eloquently puts it, “life is physics orchestrated.” Pretty humbling, huh? While our lifespans are mere blips on the universe’s timeline, it doesn’t make them worthless. As Brian describes it, the novelty of our existence lies in the fact we’re transient travellers made from the same matter as everything and everyone around us. Our ‘blip’ is part of  More info...
