Does our universe exist inside of a computer? Have the strange phenomena of quantum physics finally been explained? Not IMPOSSIBLE! demonstrates that the surprising answer may be "Yes!"

"But the material world is real" we insist, knocking on wood. How can this all be just information inside of a computer? Surely that's impossible!

Climb aboard as computer science and AI researcher, G. Wells Hanson, takes us on the seemingly impossible journey from our universe, into the depths of a computerized universe. As you ride, your fingers are pried loose from your current ideas of reality. Watch as your material world slowly begins to fade. You will travel through the machinery of the worlds of human thinking, quantum reality, the brain, and the mind. Finally, you enter a universe programmed within a computer, where the strange phenomena that appear there provides an explanation for the mysterious quantum physics that has puzzled humankind for a century.

Shaun Holmes, MA, and high school math teacher, describes the book as "...an intellectual thrill-ride that takes us from our everyday world, to a place where I question my very existence...and there's no going back! I think it really has the potential to stir the pot."
