This is an original piece of work exploring the origin of the universe and the creation of matter, positing the theory that matter was created from empty space. The author’s premise is that, despite such concepts or theories such as the Big Bang or the string theory, the actual origin of the universe remains a mystery. He puts forward his own explanation, what he terms Lines of Space. The treatise is interestingly presented in the form of a narrative with a conversation between author and son. This is a worthwhile read for anyone fascinated by the laws of physics and the mysteries of the universe that still remain to be unravelled.
