Frank J. Tipler

The Physics of Immortality


Inspired by Frank Tipler's book, the noble prize winner for literature in 1980 Czeslaw Milosz, wrote a poem entitled "After Enduring"

"... I believe that the omega-point theory deserves to become the prevailing theory of the future of spacetime ..."
physicist David Deutsch, Oxford University, on page 355 of his book The Fabric of Reality (Penguin 1997)

"... Let me just say that I think big pieces of Frank's argument are brilliant and beautifully done. But it is in the leaky joints between the pieces where I think the problems lie with Frank's theory. ..."
Kip S. Thorne, Feynman Professor of Physics at Cal Tech, in Skeptic 3 (1995), page 67.

"Besides being fascinating in its bold proclamations, this is, in fact, a very weighty book, filled with complex ideas and sophisticated results. ... Tipler has written a masterpiece for the Age of Aquarius, conferring much-craved scientific respectability on what we have always wanted to believe in. ..."
Science, 17 February 1995 (vol 267, page 1042)

"... The Physics of Immortality is, in short, an utterly extraordinary piece of work. Setting out to be a popular book, and largely succeeding thanks to its vigorous English, it still manages to be one which only a very few will understand at all completely. ... As for me, I found it fascinating."
Philosopher John Leslie, writing in London Review of Books 23 March 1995, page 8.

"Perhaps Tipler's most important contribution [in Physics of Immortality] is his insistence that the world as described by physics is more open to interaction with biblical and theological perspectives than is often believed."
Theologian Wolfhart Pannenberg, writing in Zygon, vol. 30, June 1995 page 309.
