5.0 von 5 Sternen Choose your worlds carefully..., 17. April 2000
This is a decent sequel to David Deutsch's Fabric of Reality. Unlike much of the contemporary scene, this book doesn't dumb itself down for the lowest common denominator. The nice thing about this book though, is that while it gets down into the nitty gritty you can still follow along at whatever level you are at. Some people might give a ho-hum about quantum computers but once these people get past their own inertia they will be compelled to accept just how profoundly quantum computers will change our current collective conceptual framework. Also, at a little over half way through this book you might begin to wonder where the Mind part fits in with the Machine and Multiverse parts but by the final lines everything slips snuggly into place. Perhaps the only disappointment, which is surely not the book's fault, is that quantum computers are still only ideas not actualities. However exciting this topic may be, it is a topic about the near future, not the present, and so we are naturally left wanting more.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Non Zero 1, Author 0, 18. März 2000
While the over all theme of the book is almost unassailable, the author lends himself to criticism on almost every page. For example, "There is today a lot more pig DNA around than its undomesticated kin, wild boar DNA. In that sense--in the Darwinian Sense--getting eaten is the best thing that ever happened to pork." It almost seems the author does more to invalidate his position than to justify it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mathemagical!, 10. Dezember 1999
I have to agree with the other reviewers who said they had a hard time putting this book down. So did I, even after I finished it! In fact, I loved this book so much, one year I bought 4 extra copies as Christmas presents. Without a doubt the most amazing book you will ever read. If you have lost touch with the awe and majesty of the universe, look no further, this is the book for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Everything you need to know for the 21st century, 10. Dezember 1999
I am amazed at the number of people who did not write favorable reviews of this book. Quite simply, this is one of THE greatest books of all time, up there with Cosmic Trigger (RAWilson) in terms of Sahasarara Popping Transcendence. From the very first pages providing a framework for the explanation of the famous double-slit experiment as proof of the existence of Parallel Universes, to the final pages wherein the Ultimate Secrets of the Multiverse are revealed, this book will blow you away! To put it succintly, we are Multidimensional Beings which inhabit a Multiverse. As such we are Navigators of this Multiverse and it is we who "move" through this Mulitverse which we mistakenly/have been conditioned to (delete whichever is applicable) interpret as moving in Time. In reality, there is no Time only the Infinite Library of Borges and we are only travelling through the peaks and valleys of the Immaterium, to mix metaphors. The sense and clarity of this book is amazing. Anyone who is not blown away by this book has not yet learned to walk in the Immaterium, has not yet begun to Navigate the Multiverse, has not yet learned to fly.
