Conjuring the Universe: The Origins of the Laws of Nature

Venue: Good Energy Stage

The marvellous complexity of the Universe emerges from several deep laws and a handful of fundamental constants that fix its shape, scale, and destiny. There is a deep structure to the world which at the same time is simple, elegant, and beautiful. The University of Oxford professor asks: Where did these laws and these constants come from? And why are the laws so fruitful when written in the language of mathematics?
