Dialogues On The Nature Of Time Including Ideas From Einstein To Hawking
by Sanjar Ali Khan
This book is about nature – specifically on the impact of time on nature’s various aspects. A novel approach is attempted to present new ideas through the medium of imaginary discussions principally between two animal characters – a hare and a tortoise. These characters have been accorded certain human characteristics – language, basic education and knowledge of scientific concepts as put forward through quotations from scientists, scholars and philosophers.
The ideas and concepts about time and natural phenomena are exemplified through a series of meetings between the two animal characters who sort out their own ideas and beliefs about the mysteries of time.
