4.5 stars rounded down.


By page 10, I found the use and placement of words in sentences and paragraphs cunning. I would often find myself go back to savior a well structured turn of phrase.


Reading this when sick, perhaps not the best idea.


If you enjoy the philosophy of physics, quantum physics, tantric / kundalian sex, or wave function (psi), you will find something in this book. 


This will require a 2nd reading when I am "of sound mind". I have determined to add a contemporary philosophy section to my bookshelves, wherever and whenever they are set up.
