An idiosyncratic, discursive but meaty, trip through a lot of the great stuff: the quantum nature of the vacuum, particle physics, general relativity, cosmology, quantum gravity (string theory), possibility of vacuum instability (bye bye universe!).

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0813339383, Hardcover)

Patterns in the Void examines the great dark matter and dark regions that pervade the universe, from elementary particles to the immense areas of “vacuum” that make up most of deep space, and everything that is – or is not. Like the void itself, the book ranges in temporal and spatial scales - from our human world, down to the molecular and subatomic world, and up into the farthest reaches of the expanding universe. Building upon the great theories that broke through physics and biophysics in the twentieth century, Patterns in the Void weaves the human element into understanding modern science, telling stories of ancient sacrifices, paranormal experiences, purported alien abductions, and more – all part of the human dilemma to make sense about the vast unknown.
