TIME: The Mystery At The Heart Of The Universe

October 29, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


What is time? It is not what a clock’s hands read. The significance of time and whether it even exists have been a subject of philosophical debate since Newton’s time. Einstein famously declared time to be a stubbornly persistent illusion. John Wheeler said time is what prevents everything from happening at once. Time stops inside a black hole. The latest theory of quantum gravity suggests that time emerged during the Big Bang from the quantum nature of space. This course will explore an enigma of our universe that is perhaps one of the deepest and the most mystifying. 3 SESSIONS
