Our Physical World: Is It Real or a Simulation

Course number : TC103   
« back to classes page
Scientific discoveries about our physical world have led some thinkers to question the nature of reality. This course will survey areas of physics and astronomy that provide an explanation of reality that most people understand, and then examine areas that lead some scientists to alternative conjectures about reality being simulations, multiple universes, and other amazing concepts. These conjectures will be connected to how classical physics explains reality at the human level, how Einstein explained time and space at astronomical levels, how quantum mechanics explains the subatomic, and how dark matter and energy stimulate further conjecture.
