I’m on page 156. That is all. For now.

Super curious how much of that is true.

Scribbled stuff for further discussion, but. Maybe not.

Putting this here because it’s Richard Powers’ fault (& by extension, Dr. Carter’s) that I had to look up Brownian motion. https://youtu.be/UDj7BXA1CHU

So I was swimming, massaging my foot on the jet that lets in the filtered water, and was distracted by the shadows and light patterns cast by the waves on the surface of the water. These patterns were cast on the floor of the pool as well as on the lip circling the pool above & outside of the water. Lots of dark and light circle/spheres and dark & light chaotic shifting wrinkly “lines”. Somewhat like this video of first galaxies forming: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2216182 ... &fs=e&s=cl

It reminded me of black holes & hydrogen & planck size & gravitational lensing along geodesics… & brownian motion.

Sorry I can’t be more clear. And tbh the first thing I thought of was firing neurons.
