In this talk, Jim’s will introduce the fundamental concepts of space, time, energy, and matter, and then describes the three pillars of modern physics—quantum theory, relativity, and thermodynamics—showing how all three must come together if we are ever to have a full understanding of reality. Able to make even the most enigmatic scientific ideas accessible, you will be captivated by this talk as you listen to Jim explain why physics matters to everyone and calls one and all to share in the profound adventure of seeking truth in the world around us.
