I have purchased the book as well in PDF, and while I also have not had time to read much of it, skimming through it for an overview I can highly recommend it to anyone who regularly reads the everything list as it thoroughly covers so many of the topics discussed here.

 

Congrats Professor!

Prof. Standish,

 

Congratulations on publishing what is, at least so far, a fascinating book!  I particularly appreciate that you have taken pains to make it intelligible to non-specialists.  I'm looking forward to perusing it.

 

I bought the PDF version from http://www.booksurge.com and they allowed an immediate download. 

 

Thanks and best wishes,

Norman Samish

I'm pleased to announce that my book "Theory of Nothing" is now for sale through Booksurge and Amazon.com. If you go to the Booksurge website (http://www.booksurge.com, http://www.booksurge.co.uk for Brits and http://www.booksurge.com.au for us Aussies) you should get the PDF softcopy bundled with the hardcopy book, so you can start reading straight away, or you can buy the softcopy only for a reduced price. The prices are USD 16 for the hardcopy, and USD 7.50 for the softcopy.

 

In the book, I advance the thesis that many mysteries about reality can be solved by connecting ideas from physics, mathematics, computer science, biology and congitive science. The connections flow both ways - the form of fundamental physics is constrained by our psyche, just as our psyche must be constrained by the laws of physics.

 

Many of the ideas presented in this book were developed over the years in discussions on the Everything list. I make extensive references into the Everything list archoives, as well as more traditional scientific and philosophical literature. This book may be used as one man's synthesis of the free flowing and erudite discussions of the Everything list.

 

Take a look at the book. I should have Amazon's "search inside" feature wokring soon. In the meantime, I have posted a copy of the first chapter, which contains a precis of the main argument, at http://parallel.hpc.unsw.edu.au/rks/ToN-chapter1.pdf
