Trịnh Xuân Thuận con La mélodie secrète et l'homme créa l'univers
This book, by a leading astronomer/cosmologist, treats the evolution of the universe, its impact on life, and its relation to human consciousness. The author's unique approach likens the study of the universe to music. One starts with the musical notes of observation; then proceeds to the melody of interpretation and theories; and follows up with predictions (new musical partitions). The universe's challenge to human ingenuity and science is to be able to write and play the symphonies and fugues of its music. Using many beautiful and informative illustrations, Thuan explores the bounday between science and philosophy, between science and art, and between science and religion. In attempting to forge a link between cosmology and consciousness, the author has written a book that will shine like a beacon against other more conservative books.
