Disappointed by Carlo Rovelli’s “Order of Time”. Reads more like a physicist’s hobby project in creative writing (though quite a poetic one)… rather than a container of eye-opening, bleeding-edge information.
Main ideas: time is quantized, entropy increases with time, time is local and relative, we don’t know how to reconcile general relativity with quantum mechanics, because we don’t understand time. 🤦🏻♂️
Also, I’m afraid most of us who skipped physics and philosophy classes won’t understand a thing reading through this tasteful collection of quotes and references (from thermodynamics or Mahabharata).
