            Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe

            Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe (Hardback)

            Brian Greene takes readers on a breathtaking journey from the big bang to the end of time and invites us to ponder meaning in the face of this unimaginable expanse. He shows us how, despite the universe's tendency toward entropy, remarkable structures form: planets, stars, and ga...laxies provide islands in a sea of disorder; biochemical mechanisms animate life; neurons, information, and thought give rise to complex consciousness, which in turn creates cultures and their timeless myths and creativity. Through a series of nested stories Greene provides us with a clearer sense of how we came to be, a finer picture of where we are now, and a firmer understanding of where we are headed. Science has proven to be modern society's greatest source for meaning, and Brian Greene takes us on a grand tour of the universe while always keeping his eye on one central question: What does it all mean?

            In this refreshing work of history and scientific analysis, data scientist Alexander Boxer examines classical texts on astrology to examine its underlying scientific and mathematical framework. Boxer takes what he calls a series of deep dives into astrology, first tracing differe...nt applications of the system back to the ancient thinkers who developed them, and then putting these applications to the test using modern data sets and statistical science. At once critical, rigorous, and imaginative, A Scheme of Heaven re-contextualizes astrology as a vast, technological project-spanning continents and centuries-that was once at the cutting edge of scientific thought.
