I’m interested in deepening my understanding of the raw physics and math of these unified theories.
I took up to P3 and some Solid State Physics in College and always aced the tests and loved physics and math, though that was a while ago.
I’ve considered going back to school at some point, but like Haramein, I don’t want to get caught in a limited way of thinking. I would rather self study for the moment.
I don’t see myself as a research scientist. My role is more of a translator, taking these very abstract concepts and making it understandable to the layperson. So the more complete and accurate my depth of knowledge is the more clear and accurate of a picture I can draw for those who don’t have the same aptitude for physics.
Feels clear to start with Relativity and Einstein’s work. I’ve heard Gravitation by Misner, Thorne and Wheeler is the way to go. I will likely purchase that soon.
Would also love to really understand black holes.
I’m not really interested in being able to disprove anything, so should I even dive into Quantum theory? This seems like where our understanding went ary. Maybe better not to waste my time.
Does anyone have any other recommended reading? I love math too and would love some guidance on what math would be good to learn to support my understanding of the physics.
Any and all recommendations are appreciated
