Mathematics, Edge of Time, and The Loom of God . . .

If you are seeking inspiration for a wild and wacky yet creative idea for a project or assignment or just a thought-provoking read, I suggest indulging in one of the books by Clifford A. Pickover – author of forty books on such topics as computers and creativity, art, mathematics, black holes, human behavior and intelligence, time travel, alien life, religion, medical mysteries, and science fiction.

One Example in the library, The Loom of God Tapestries of Mathematics and Mysticism
Here, Pickover explores connections between mathematics and mysticism, mathematics of God…

“From the mysterious cult of Pythagoras, to the awesome mechanics of Stonehenge, to the fearsome gargoyles and glorious fractals created on the computer screens of today, Pickover explains the power of numbers and their connection with the search for the ultimate meaning and Apocalypse of the universe.”
