tears of joy from that's great a tears of joy from that's great a memory that will last fo my new book the hidden reality takes on a grand question: is our universe the only universe? you see, there's a growing belief among scientists like me that ours may only be one among many universes populating a gigantic cosmos. in the hidden reality, i explore this possibility without presuming any knowledge of mathematics or physics on the part of the reader. hysterical. i'm glad you talked me into this. we work so hard, sometimes it's nice to goof off and do something silly. agreed. wait till you hear how he dumbs down werner heisenberg for the crowd. you may actually believe you're in a comedy club. you can think about heisenberg's "uncertainty principle" much like the special order menu that you find in certain chinese restaurants, where you have dishes in column a and other dishes in column b, and if you order the first dish in column a,
