A physicist by training, I dwell much of the time in the borderlands. My PhD thesis work was in the strange region where the mathematics of physics spills over into biology. Currently, I’m engaged with a problem in quantum information theory that brings into physics mathematical concepts that a dully orthodox physics education never touched. This problem also provides an opportunity to delve into the charmingly obscure byways of science history.

to care about the rest of them.”
The Giver looked at him with a questioning smile.
Jonas hung his head. Of course they needed to care.
It was the meaning of everything.
