Book Review: The Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli

You can debate if this is a philosophy book or a physics book that lacks mathematical formulae. Still, I think such a dichotomy is unnecessary as the poetic words can fit into the ream of physics as much as mathematics and physical reality into the realm of philosophy as philosophy in its rawest form is a study of existence. This is an excellent lyrical book which at times flows from word to word without sticking. Not because of difficult concepts but because of soft and smooth prose. This made listening to the audiobook difficult. There were those times I needed to go back and not let the words only pass me by like this stream of consciousness. I came to the conclusion that to get the most out of this book and to be able to remember not only the essence, I have to reread this in a physical form.

And I think I get back to you giving a proper review when I do that. Now all I can say is that this is a beautiful, profound book not only about the nature of time but also about how humans perceive it. It left me with a puzzling question if there is no time at the atomic level and the human concept of time is relative, then what is going on? How is there a past, present, and future? And why do they hold such a swaying power how we treat others?

Thank you for reading and have a multidimensional day!
