The Illusion of Reality – An Amazing documentary on Nuclear Physics


Professor Jim Al-Khalili explores how studying the atom forced us to rethink the nature of reality itself. The possibilities just keep getting limitless, as we stumble upon newer and newer discoveries deeper into the very core of existence – The minutest unit to which something can exist. This documentary resonates very well to my article that I posted “People who deny existence of God“. He envisages that there might be parallel universes in which different versions of us exist. You will know that Empty space isn’t empty at all. How knowledge can give us an entirely new perception and the knowledge of reality.

On the other note, it makes me wonder, how naive and irrelavent we are in this infinite universe, yet the ego within each of us makes us think of ourselves as the ultimate, strongest and the all-knowing. Humility therefore is often seen in only those who move on to acquire humongous knowledge that only makes them realize how irrelavent we are.

  2. Hi Doc,
    What a powerful video. Wonder why they did not talk about the Dance of Shiva, which sounds alot like what anti-matter does.
