Professor Lee Smolin of the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Canada, author and theoretical physcist, will talk about the evolution of laws in our universe.
What is time? Is our perception of time passing an illusion which hides a deeper, timeless reality? Or is it real, indeed, the most real aspect of our experience of the world? Perimeter Institute Faculty member Lee Smolin examines these and other timely questions from his book Time Reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe during his 2013 Perimeter Institute Public Lecture.
Smolin’s new book, co-authored with Roberto Mangabeira Unger, is The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time.
