  In The Constants of Nature, Cambridge Professor and bestselling author John takes us on an exploration of these governing principles. Drawing on physicists such as Einstein and Planck, Barrow illustrates with stunning clarity our dependence on the steadfastness of these principles/5(37). In The Constants of Nature, Cambridge Professor and bestselling author John takes us on an exploration of these governing principles. Drawing on physicists such as Einstein and Planck, Barrow illustrates with stunning clarity our dependence on . John D. Barrow, in his fascinating book, The Constants of Nature: The Numbers that Encode the Deepest Secrets of the Universe, tells us that our system of measurements, such as the inch, the foot, the yard and the mile are rather useless in defining nature, because they center around human beings--what he calls, anthropometrics.   The constants of nature are the numbers that define the essence of the Universe. They tell us how strong its forces are, and what its fundamental laws can do: the strength of gravity, of magnetism, the speed of light, and the masses of the smallest particles of by:

The natural constants are delicately balanced to make the universe safe for living organisms: altering them more than a hair would make stars burn out, atoms fly . The constants of nature: from Alpha to Omega--the numbers that encode the deepest secrets of the universe John D. Barrow A major contribution to our understanding of the basic laws of the universe -- from the author of The Book of Nothing.   The constants of nature appear remarkably bio-friendly. This might lead some to believe that a creator must have been at work to set up the universe so sympathetically as to admit the possibility. certain constants, quantities that might be called fundamental constants of nature. One or two at a time, the constants of physics make their appearance in many of the popular books that cram the cosmology shelves. In the last few years two nontechnical works entirely devoted to these constants have been added to the shelves.
