The Loom of God

Author(s): Clifford A. Pickover

Mind, Body & Spirit SPECIALS

From the mysterious cult of Pythagoras and the awesome mechanics of Stonehenge to the 'gargoyles' and fractals on today's computers, mathematics has always been a powerful, even divine force in the world. In a lively, intelligent synthesis of maths, mysticism and science fiction, Clifford Pickover explains the eternal magic of numbers. Taking a uniquely humorous approach, he appoints the reader 'Chief Historian' of an intergalactic museum who must travel, along with a quirky cast of characters, hurtling through the ages to explore how individuals used numbers for such purposes as predicting the end of the world, finding love and winning wars.
