With all due respect to our collective human intellect, the average person doesnt exactly get quantum physics. So when you not only get quantum physics but then decide its a great idea to seek parallels between the field and those of economics, East Asian religious theory and psychological science, youre a rare bird indeed. Paco Ahlgren, who will be reading from and signing his debut novel, Discipline, today at Borders, is one such creature. His book, essentially about a mans self-discovery, entails trips through time and multiple universes, and all the while forges connections among economics, religion and, of course, physics. Whether or not your own endeavors are a bit more modest, Ahlgrens should be an interesting voice to hear even if just to appreciate your own lazy Sunday a little bit more.
