Beschreibungen

Our naked eyes see only a thin sliver of reality. We are blind in comparison to the x-rays that peer through skin, the mass spectrometers that detect the dead inside the living, or the high-tech surveillance systems that see with artificial intelligence. And we are blind compared to the animals that can see in infrared, or ultraviolet, or in 360-degree vision. These animals live in the same world we do, but they see something quite different when they look around. With all of the curiosity and flair that drives her broadcasting, Ziya Tong illuminates this hidden world, and takes us on a journey to examine ten of humanity's biggest blind spots. What she reveals is not on the things we didn't evolve to see but, more dangerously, the blindness of modern society. This vitally important new book shows how sciences, and the wonder and courage that drive it, can help civilisation flourish by opening our eyes. Fast-paced, utterly fascinating and deeply humane, The Reality Bubble gives voice to the sense we've all had - that there is more to the world than meets the eye.
