Ubiquity: The Science of History, Or why the World is Simpler Than We Think

Front Cover
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2000 - Causality (Physics) - 230 pages
Scientists have recently discovered a previously unrecognised law of nature: no matter what the system, all follow a single universal pattern of change. Mathematically, this pattern is known as a power law and, until recently, it was virtually unknown outside physics. However, now that science is looking, its footprints can be seen everywhere. There is, it seems, an archetypal organization working in the world at all levels - the so-called principle of universality. This discovery heralds what the author calls the new science of ubiquity and here documents the coming revolution that this discovery will bring.
