Publisher's Summary

Presented in clear and accessible language, Roberts offers the listener a voyage through the stages of human knowledge. He then examines the outstanding mysteries of modern physics, the phenomena that lie outside the borders of our current understanding (dark energy, dark matter, the Big Bang, wave-particle duality, quantum tunneling, state vector reduction, etc.) and suggests that the next step in our intellectual journey is to treat the vacuum of space as a superfluid - modeling it as being composed of interactive quanta, which, in a self-similar way, are composed of subquanta, and so on.
With this proposition, Roberts imbues the vacuum with fractal geometry and opens the door to explaining the outstanding mysteries of physics geometrically. Roberts' model, called quantum space theory, has been praised for how it offers an intuitively accessible picture of 11 dimensions and for powerfully extending the insight of general relativity, eloquently translating the four forces into unique kinds of geometric distortions while offering us access to the underlying deterministic dynamics that give rise to quantum mechanics. That remarkably simple picture explains the mysteries of modern physics in a way that's fully commensurate with Einstein's Intuition. It's a refreshingly unique perspective that generates several testable predictions.

Einstein's Intuition: Highly Innovative and Superb

If you could sum up Einstein's Intuition: Visualizing Nature in Eleven Dimensions in three words, what would they be?

Thad Roberts has done an impeccable job of challenging the present "canon" of physics to hopefully inspire a younger generation of physicists to think intuitively about science and mathematics. I have read well over 200 books on physics and this book is the most original and thought-provoking.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The most thought-provoking section of the book is in its attempt to guide the non-physicist on the value associated with rethinking physics from the standpoint of the quantum void. It's always been surprising to me of how little of the focus has been in physics on the quantum void or quantum vacuum. One hopes that the research at CERN will help in elucidating the interplay between the quantum vacuum and the standard model.

A glimpse of the Theory of Everything

This book is extremely thought provoking and provides a path to the ultimate theory of everything. There are a few things I don't agree with. For example Thad believes that there is no such thing as true randomness and thus everything is determined. He also believes that every universe in the fractal ladder is playing out the same events just at different spots in the timeline; that would only be true if every universe's Big Bang had the same initial condition and I believe he fails to show that to be the case.

The fact that Thad was able to define the 20 some-odd constants of nature using only the geometry of space pinpoints the fact that there is more to this QST theory than conjecture.

I deducted a full star for two reasons. 1) I would have liked more detail and insight on worm holes, quantum tunneling, dark matter and dark energy. 2) There were too many non-sequiturs in this book. For example a whole chapter on religion and how it has stymied scientific progress. I get where Thad is coming from since his QST is "out there" and not yet gaining the traction it deserves but these ad-homonyms only detract from his theory and add no real value to the reader, it serves mostly as a catharsis for Thad.

Overall a must read for anybody who has an ontological yearning for the origin of the universe and all of creation.

Brand new perspective

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, couldn't put it down. Fascinating insights, intuitive reasoning, clear explanations and beautifully written. Yes you can visualise 11 dimensional SpaceTime.

Very interesting ideas but hard work.

overall a good listen. The ideas about the universe as a superfluid and on multiple dimensions to explain quantum mechanics were fascinating and things I'd not heard before. Quite difficult to listen to at times, initially the narrator and later the way concepts were described. May be a good thing and take a few listens to digest.

The mist clears to give us a new vista.

Rekindled the humanity, that is inherent in the scientific journey. Refreshed my heart while stretching my intuition, giving it a clearer path, finding the beautiful patterns in the abstract.
