This sequel to God and the New Physics explores the fascinating questions of modern physics such as why does maths, an abstract system of logic invented by man, prove to be so useful in understanding the laws of nature? And is the existence of intelligent life a random chance or in some sense an inevitable and essential part of the cosmos?
