    A brilliantly original and richly illuminating exploration of entanglement, the seemingly telepathic communication between two separated particles - one of the fundamental concepts of quantum physics.

    Mark says: "A nice mix of theory and history."
    "an excellent introduction to Entanglement"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Age of Entanglement?

    It showes in Historical sequence,with a very readable narrative the essence of the subject.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Age of Entanglement?

    that grandson of Schrodinger is follwing the path to meaning of quantum mechanics without being aware that schrodinger was related to him.


    Which character – as performed by Walter Dixon – was your favorite?

    Einstein


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Age of entanglement
    we have had age of inocence of Edith Wharton,Guilded age, but not anything like age of science.(we have had atomic age with a negative destructive conotation) especially anything that is refered to one its strange phenomenon that is completely counter intuitive.


    Any additional comments?

    THere are a lot of talks about philosophy that looks like another branch of Literature or in other words ,is nothing more than another aspect of words play ( e,g :Gramatology a la Derrida,Semiotics:a la Umberto Eco,or an ecclectic post modern ,mombo jombo ,that necessarily has nothing to do with objective reality, so the job of philosopher is not to interpret reality on the base of scientific method but interpret according to his take on a text,historical document or what he or she perceive as truth without any reference to scientific evidence.Entanglement and understanding it, is giving a jolt to world of ideas ,similar to Einstein Relativity that totally changed our concept of time and space . Artists in the dawn of 20th century start to utilize different concept of time and space ,that seemed weierd and new, in their works ( Picaso in painting,Joyce in novel ,Schoenberg in music,...etc)I am not aware of anybody in realm literature ,painting and or music that is aware of profound implication that entanglement will have in our future scientific endeavors and how it will revolutionize our communications,vision and over all how we will deal with external world that is independent of our limited perceptional abilities.Michael Benhurimbenhu@aol.com
