Editorial Reviews


An Intellectual Mind-Twister.
A book unlike any other.
Gillespie, a physicist, sets out to explore the origin of space and time, examining 47 of the major "problems" of physics for clues, which he examines within the format of a highly literate detective story. We have found Time One so fascinating and so challenging that we have found it irresistible to bring the book to our readers' attention.
- Editor, JSPES

A new genre of communication.
So unique that it would seem unpardonable not to alert our readers to it.
A theory of the origin of both space and time ... It invites the reader into the investigation ... It would seem impossible to be intellectually passive while reading this book. The arts of a novelist, the learning of a literary scholar, and the intricacies of scientific inquiry I find the cosmology fascinating and appreciate the many literary and scientific quotations with which Gillespie precedes each of the chapters and that find their way, also, into his text.
- Dwight D. Murphey

This may be an important book. Without doubt it is an unusual one.
Answers many of the biggest questions that have arisen in physics and cosmology.
For many physics concepts he gives summaries that mostly are as good as anyone could reasonably desire. Eliminates the currently accepted need to postulate a mysterious dark energy.
Assembled in a notably unconventional and impressively ingenious way, many parts of his solution to the mystery of the origin of the universe are established concepts or theories or observations. Gillespie has given people interested in physics and cosmology much to think about.
- David Miller, space physicist

From the Author

In this book I take you back to the verybeginning of the universe―the first tocks of the cosmicclock―a realm that is now the focus of new physics: stunning discoveries are openingup ideas that affect our lives. I set the physics in a story― Its narratortakes a journey through the halls of knowledge―old and new―with a twist ofmystery and humor to discover the beginning. In the end, you solve the mysteryof the beginning for yourself.
This helps achieve my main purpose in writing it:Empowering more people to contribute to the universal conversation.
