How do objects and images move? What is motion? How does a rainbow form? Do time machines exist? What is the maximum force value found in nature? Is the universe a set? Which problems in physics are still unsolved? Free physics textbook that tells the story of how it became possible, after 2500 years of exploration, to answer such questions. The book is written for the curious: it is entertaining, surprising and challenging on every page. With little mathematics, starting from observations of everyday life, the text explores the most fascinating parts of mechanics, thermodynamics, special and general relativity, electrodynamics, quantum theory and modern attempts at unification. The essence of these fields is summarized in the most simple terms.

This is an attempt to derive all theoretical physics equations (ever needed for applications) from the general and special relativity and the standard model of particle physics. All calculations are very explicit, with no intermediate steps left out.

In the following pages a scheme of the subject is developed, which forms a two-year course when two or three hours a week are devoted to the subject. The portions of Physics usually treated under Applied Mechanics and Electricity have been omitted.
