Eh well i didn't really hate this. Seems like author is making some unknown manifestations into something special. Particles, waves, quantum leaps. Science means to know. This seems more unknown or mystical an area. The gaps are not filled. Read full review. Gee, is it a quarter century ago when I read this?
