about

Storrs McCall presents an original philosophical theory of the nature of the universe based on a striking new model of its space-time structure. He shows how his model illuminates a broad range of subjects, including causation, probability, quantum mechanics, identity, and free will, andargues that the fact that the model throws light on such a large number of problems constitutes strong evidence that the universe is as the model portrays it.
