  1. 1. The Tao of Physics

    The book explores the parallels between modern physics and eastern mysticism. It draws connections between quantum mechanics, relativity theory and concepts in Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Zen. The author argues that the two seemingly disparate areas of study - physics and mysticism - both seek to understand the fundamental nature of the universe and that they do so in strikingly similar ways. The book challenges conventional thinking and encourages readers to see the world from a more holistic, interconnected perspective.
