Is God a Number?




If mathematics underpins the elegant precision of the macroscopic and microscopic worlds, is there a Master Mathematician as well? here is a fascinating examination of the computational paradigms being used to model human consciousness and to quantify reality, from Euclidean geometry to fractal transform algorithms. Oxford mathematician Sir Roger Penrose, quantum physicist Reverend John Polkinghorne, compression technology expert Michael Barnsley, and physiologist Horace Barlow seek to understand how the brain functions—and grope for evidence of a guiding force. Outstanding computer graphics enhance this exploration of inner and outer space.
