Publisher Description

The author of Zero explains the scientific revolution that is transforming the way we understand our world
Previously the domain of philosophers and linguists, information theory has now moved beyond the province of code breakers to become the crucial science of our time. In Decoding the Universe, Charles Seife draws on his gift for making cutting-edge science accessible to explain how this new tool is deciphering everything from the purpose of our DNA to the parallel universes of our Byzantine cosmos. The result is an exhilarating adventure that deftly combines cryptology, physics, biology, and mathematics to cast light on the new understanding of the laws that govern life and the universe.

Spooky Things At A Distance

About the most I could conclude after reading this book is everything is ultimately doomed to non- existence.

The author's use of the phrase, "if as Information Theorists believe " too closely resembles the phrase "if as Ancient Alien Theorists believe" from the History Channel's show about the possibility of Ancient aliens visiting earth. Both of which ask the everyday Joe to accept theories that are just too counter intuitive.

He may be right or he may be wrong but who will ever know? Not I.
