The World As We Think Maybe Perhaps Possibly We Know It

Two great science communicators….:

I mini-reviewed Jim Holt's book "Why Does the World Exist?" awhile back at MathTango HERE, and he and physicist Sean Carroll recently sat down for an interesting discussion of the topic below:

This is more physics and philosophy than mathematics, but still of potential interest to many math buffs. The conversation is close to an hour long, followed by audience questions, so you'll need to make some time for it, or play it in the background as you do other Webby things.

Unfortunately, they weren't able to settle the question once-and-for-all in the allotted time... ;-)
