it was amazing

I really liked this one, not only because it harkened back to my undergrad physics days, but because I met David Bohm (aka Mallach in the book). It was only to shake his hand and say "it is all about perception" as he looked at me, wise and amused, like I was some kind of puppy sliding awkwardly on a linoleum floor. But he wasn't nuts or miserable. He was busy talking to eastern mystics and writing about it. I didn't know he was bitter about the fate of his hidden variable theory. Anyway, the book plays with time and light and love and betrayal. Fascinating.
