Tonight Inquiry welcomes writer, physicist and physics professor at M.I.T. MAX TEGMARK who talks about his amazing new book OUR MATHEMATICAL UNIVERSE: MY QUEST FOR THE ULTIMATE NATURE OF REALITY. Is it possible that the ultimate foundations of the universe are mathematical structures? Is time an illusion? Could we be living in a simulation like in the Matrix? All this and more on tonight’s conversation with one of the most original theorists of cosmology.
Inquiry talks with ERROL FULLER, artist, writer and world authority on bird and animal extinction. His new book is titled LOST ANIMALS: EXTINCTION AND THE PHOTOGRAPHIC RECORD and is a collection of amazing and poignant photographs of extinct mammals and birds. Tune in and listen to the stories of the people who took these photographs of Ivory-billed Woodpeckers and Thylacines, the unique marsupial carnivore (pictured here).
