WE EACH EXIST FOR BUT A SHORT TIME, and in that time explore but a small part of the whole universe. But humans are a curious species. We wonder, we seek answers. Living in this vast world that is by turns kind and cruel, and gazing at the immense heavens above, people have always asked a multitude of questions: How can we understand the world in which we find ourselves? How does the universe behave? What is the nature of reality? Where did all this come from? Did the universe need a creator? Most of us do not spend most of our time worrying about these questions, but almost all of us worry about them some of the time.

 

我们每个人的一生不过是很短的时间,只能探索整个宇宙的一小部分。但人类是充满好奇心的生灵。我们心存好奇,并追寻答案。生活在这辽阔的世界,不管是仁慈的还是残忍的,当人们仰望深邃遥远的天空,总会有一连串的疑问:我们如何理解身处其间的世界呢?宇宙如何运行?真实的本质是什么?尽管多数人不会因这些问题而日思夜想,但几乎每个人都会偶尔感到困扰。

 

Traditionally these are questions for philosophy, but philosophy is dead. Philosophy has not kept up with modern developments in science, particularly physics. Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge. The purpose of this book is to give the answers that are suggested by recent discoveries and theoretical advances. They lead us to a new picture of the universe and our place in it that is very different from the traditional one, and different even from the picture we might have painted just a decade or two ago. Still, the first sketches of the new concept can be traced back almost a century.

这都是些传统的哲学问题,但哲学已死。哲学没能跟上现代科学的发展,尤其是物理学。科学家已接过我们在知识探索领域的火炬,成为领路人。这本书的目的在于给出基于最新发现和理论发展所暗示的答案。带我们走进一副崭新的宇宙画卷,这与以往所描绘的景象大相径庭,甚至不同于一二十年前的印象。而这新画面的草图,却仍然几乎可以追溯到一个世纪以前。
