Inhaltsangabe: God’s war crimes, Aristotle’s sneaky tricks, Einstein’s pajamas, information theory’s blind spot, Stephen Wolfram’s new kind of science, and six monkeys at six typewriters getting it wrong. What do these have to do with the birth of a universe and with your need for meaning? Everything, as you’re about to see.

How does the cosmos do something it has long been thought only gods could achieve? How does an inanimate universe generate stunning new forms and unbelievable new powers without a creator? How does the cosmos create?

That’s the central question of this book, which finds clues in strange places. Why A does not equal A. Why one plus one does not equal two. How the Greeks used kickballs to reinvent the universe. And the reason that Polish-born Benoît Mandelbrot—the father of fractal geometry—rebelled against his uncle.

You’ll take a scientific expedition into the secret heart of a cosmos you’ve never seen. Not just any cosmos. An electrifyingly inventive cosmos. An obsessive-compulsive cosmos. A driven, ambitious cosmos. A cosmos of colossal shocks. A cosmos of screaming, stunning surprise. A cosmos that breaks five of science’s most sacred laws. Yes, five. And you’ll be rewarded with author Howard Bloom’s provocative new theory of the beginning, middle, and end of the universe—the Bloom toroidal model, also known as the big bagel theory—which explains two of the biggest mysteries in physics: dark energy and why, if antimatter and matter are created in equal amounts, there is so little antimatter in this universe.

Called "truly awesome" by Nobel Prize–winner Dudley Herschbach, The God Problem will pull you in with the irresistible attraction of a black hole and spit you out again enlightened with the force of a big bang. Be prepared to have your mind blown.

From the Author: There's a secret hidden in a mathematical nugget called Peano's Axioms.  Is Peano 's mystery the key to the cosmos?The God Problem tackles the question of how a godless cosmos creates; of how a universe without a bearded and bathrobed god in the sky pulls off acts of genesis. And it pursues the riddles behind five mildly flabbergasting heresies: 

  1. a does not equal a 
  2. one plus one does not equal two 
  3. entropy is wrong 
  4. randomness is not as random as you think and
  5. information theory is way off base.
Says The God Problem: God's war crimes, Aristotle's sneaky tricks, Galileo's creationism, Newton's intelligent design,  entropy's errors,  Einstein's pajamas, John Conway's game of loneliness, Information Theory's blind spot, Stephen Wolfram's New Kind Of Science, and six monkeys at six typewriters getting it wrong. What do these have to do with the birth of a universe and with your need for meaning?  Everything, as you're about to see.In The God Problem you'll take a scientific expedition into the secret heart of a cosmos you've never seen.   An electrifyingly inventive cosmos. An obsessive-compulsive cosmos. A driven, ambitious cosmos. A cosmos of colossal shocks.  A cosmos of screaming, stunning surprise.  A cosmos that's the biggest invention engine--the biggest breakthrough maker, the biggest creator--of all time.One critic has suggested that The God Problem may be a great book on a par with Darwin's Origin of the Species and Newton's Principia Mathematica.  One Nobel Prize winner and two Macarthur Genius Award winners have said The God Problem is "spectacular" and "great."    Early readers like Amazon.com's number one non-fiction reviewer have said The God Problem is "the next paradigm," "a game-changer," and a book that will "change your life."  And Heinz Insu Fenkl of SUNY's Interstitial Studies Institute says, "The God Problem is the next paradigm. It doesn't take you down the proverbial 'rabbit hole' -- it will take you to a place from which you will never re-emerge, a brand new universe in the same skin as the one you now unknowingly inhabit."Will The God Problem utterly change the way you see everything around you and everything inside you? That's my intention.  But only one person can answer that question: you."Enthralling.  Astonishing.  Written with the panache of  the Great Blondin turning somersaults on the rope above Niagara.  Profound, extraordinarily eclectic, and crazy.   The most exciting cliffhanger of a book I can remember reading." James Burke, creator and host of seven BBC TV series, including Connections"I have just come out from the giddy ride through things of the mind and mathematics that is The God Problem. Bloom takes us on a magic carpet ride of ideas about: well, about everything. And it turns out that everything we knew about everything is probably wrong. The God Problem is an intellectual cave of wonders made more wonderful by the tales of the lives of the people behind the ideas. Don't start this book late at night, for it will banish sleep."  Robin Fox, Rutgers University, author of  The Tribal Imagination: Civilization and the Savage Mind, former director of research for the H. F. Guggenheim Foundation"If Howard Bloom is only 10 percent right, we'll have to drastically revise our notions of the universe. There's no mysticism in The God Problem-- no God, no religion, no incommunicable spiritual insights -- just the contagious joy of a great mind set loose on the biggest intellectual puzzles humans have ever faced. Whether you're a scientist or a hyper-curious layperson, Bloom's argument will rock your world."  Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed, National Magazine Award Winner
