For those of you currently in western Massachusetts or eastern upstate New York, some news: I’ll be speaking about my book today, Monday, June 24th, 5:30 pm, in Lenox, MA. At this free event, held at the local institution known simply as “The Bookstore“, I’ll read from the text and discuss its central message. After that, I’ll answer questions from the audience and sign books.

In other news — for those of you waiting (im)patiently for the audiobook, I am glad to report that there is finally some forward movement on that front. I’m still not sure how long it will take for the audio version to become available, but progress should be steady and rapid from here.

  1. So, fundamental massive particles are resonances in fields and as you go done deeper only bosons could exist. Doesn’t that mean that the fundamental mechanism that creates the universe is the interactions of waves, without mass?

    “Researcher suggests that gravity can exist without mass, mitigating the need for hypothetical dark matter” – phys.org … an article about Dr. Richard Lieu at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) publishing a paper in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society

    How outrageous is it to conjecture that if gravity can exist without mass so can quantum gravity. Therefore could quantum gravity be the fundamental force that all other forces can be derived from through the quantum flunctuations at the lowest scale, even below Planck’s scale?

    Will the Future Circular Collider and/or even the proposed “largest” collider in China give us any evidence of this theory?

  2. I for one would love to purchase the audio version. Please keep me informed!

After a tiring spring that followed the publication of the book, I’ve taken a little break. But starting tomorrow, I’ll be posting on the blog

[Update: unfortunately, the link below was taken down before the tour, with no explanation. The tour was instead recorded at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67mF5Yx7ZG0.] Would anyone like a tour
