Hiding in the Mirror: The Mysterious Allure of Extra Dimensions, by Dr. Lawrence Krauss
In Hiding In The Mirror: The Mysterious Allure of Extra Dimensions, from Plato to String Theory and Beyond, Krauss asks, “Is the Universe as we seem to experience it all there is?”
Human beings have long imagined alternate realities. This longing to discover more than our present existence began well before Plato’s allegory of the cave and continues today, with modern scientific breakthroughs such as relativity and quantum mechanics influencing the pop culture worlds of Twilight Zone and Star Trek. Dr. Lawrence Krauss examines why we often believe that the answers to the great questions about existence lie in the possibility that we live in a universe more complex than we can see or otherwise sense. Drawing on work by scientists, mathematicians, artists, and writers, Krauss’s latest book, Hiding in the Mirror, explores whether extra dimensions simply represent abstract speculation or hold the key to a deeper understanding of the Universe. Krauss examines popular culture’s embrace — and misunderstanding — of topics such as black holes, life in another dimension, string theory, and some of the daring new theories that propose that large extra dimensions exist alongside our own.
Dr. Krauss is Professor of Physics at Case Western Reserve University and the author of Atom, Quintessence, Beyond Star Trek, and The Physics of Star Trek.
