Read online The Science of Discworld.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Science of Discworld When a wizardly experiment goes adrift the wizards of Unseen University find themselves with a pocket universe on their hands Roundworld where neither magic nor common sense seems to stand a chance against logic The Universe of course is our own And Roundworld is Earth As the wizards watch their accidental creation grow we follow the story of our universe from the primal singularity of the Big Bang to the Internet and beyond Through this original Terry Pratchett story with intervening chapters from Cohen and Stewart we discover how puny and insignificant individual lives are against a cosmic backdrop of creation and disaster Yet paradoxically we see how the richness of a universe based on rules has led to a complex world and at least one species that tried to get a grip of what was going on by Terry Pratchett, Ian Stewart, Jack Cohen
