Tim,

As a fellow gearhead and hot rodder, I too became inerested in Quantum Physics. What got me started was an article in the newspaper about how scientists had created an experiment that measured the result of an action on one particle with a coresponding reaction on another particle some distance away. (How they measured this, I don't know). Anyway, the first book I read on the subject was "In Search of Schroedinger's Cat". The nice thing about this book was how simple the terms were that described Quantum Physics. Of course, the true language of this science is mathematics but it sure enlightened me as to what this branch of physics is all about. The book "The Tao of Physics" was the second book I read and it certainly was interesting in the comparisons to quantum physics and Eastern religion. Fascinating stuff.

Now I read you have been intrigued by the exact same things. What is it about us that makes us so drawn to such topics? I am the same age as you and grew up just down the road from the Brizio shop so building hotrods was an early passion for me and continues to this day just as it is with you.

Heaven help the psychiatrist that tries to decipher what makes us tick. Love your comedy and the way you think. Hope to meet you someday and chat about the things that makes us go round.

Take care and would love to hear your thoughts.

Bob
