By Mohamed Haj Yousef

This publication is the 1st finished try to clarify Ibn ‘Arabî’s targeted view of time and its function within the strategy of developing the cosmos and its relation with the author. by way of evaluating this unique view with sleek theories of physics and cosmology, Mohamed Haj Yousef constructs a brand new cosmological version which could deepen and expand our figuring out of the area, whereas possibly fixing a number of the drawbacks within the present versions corresponding to the historic Zeno's paradoxes of movement and the new Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox (EPR) that underlines the discrepancies among Quantum Mechanics and Relativity.

An Introduction to Mathematical Cosmology

This ebook presents a concise creation to the mathematical elements of the foundation, constitution and evolution of the universe. The publication starts with a quick evaluate of observational and theoretical cosmology, in addition to a brief creation of common relativity. It then is going directly to talk about Friedmann versions, the Hubble consistent and deceleration parameter, singularities, the early universe, inflation, quantum cosmology and the far away way forward for the universe.

The Stardust Revolution: The New Story of Our Origin in the Stars

3 nice clinical revolutions have formed our knowing of the cosmos and our dating to it. The 16th and 17th centuries witnessed the Copernican Revolution, which bodychecked the Earth because the pivot element of construction and joined us with the remainder of the cosmos as one planet between many orbiting the solar.

The Distribution of the Galaxies: Gravitational Clustering in Cosmology

Modern astronomers proceed to go looking for tactics to appreciate the abnormal distribution of galaxies in our Universe. This quantity describes gravitational idea, desktop simulations and observations relating to galaxy distribution capabilities, that's a basic procedure for measuring the distribution of galaxies and their motions.

In Search of Nature

Might be greater than the other scientist of our century, Edward O. Wilson has scrutinized animals of their common settings, tweezing out the dynamics in their social association, their courting with their environments, and their habit, not just for what it tells us in regards to the animals themselves, yet for what it could let us know approximately human nature and our personal habit.

According to this account in chapter 371, the universe appeared in the Universal Soul through the Universal Intellect as the result of what Ibn ‘Arabî calls an ‘abstract (or ‘spiritual’) marriage’ (nikâh ma‘nawî).

However, for times shorter than about 10–43 seconds, the so-called Planck time, science has no experimental support that time holds its continuousness. But physicists agree that General Relativity must fail for durations shorter than the Planck time,27 though they do not know exactly how and what is the substitute.
