The tree

Has much to answer

Still it stands



  1. I looked up Anton Zeilinger. Doesn't the idea ofquantum teleportation just make your hair stand on end?
    The tree, on the other hand, has read Milton, On His Blindness, and knows they also serve who only stand and wait, however unfortunate their haircuts.

  2. Mairi, you are right of course - the tree has been reading Milton. When I asked a quantum friend what he thought about the universe of small things he confessed to being sceptical. And that brought me to the thought that we are someplace where 96% is dark matter. That is to say there are 100 rabbits waiting in their hats but there are currently only 4 hats on the stage before which we sit.
