Hiding in the Mirror

As some of you might now know, I have 'officially' started on my "Mirror World" project*. The reason why I use the inverted commas is because I have yet to start shooting (pictures), but am doing research into the topic. In the course of my research, I stumbled upon a rather interesting and fascinating book called "Hiding in the Mirror", by Lawrence M. Kauss. It was a pleasurable read, and it took me nearly three weeks to complete it.

Despite being baffled by almost the entire book, since afterall I'm not a physics student and quantum physics and extra dimensional theories are not that easy to comprehend, I gained a few interesting ideas as to how to go about doing my project. Extra dimensions are indeed fascinating and mind-boggling.

I leave you with a quote from the epilogue of the book that struck me.

One never knows where insights will come from, or where they may lead. The pleasure of research is discovering the unexpected.
