I agree...

I read the book myself...twice...and still return to it on ocassion...

I find the overall concept intriguing...and for a nonmathematical person such
as myself it is a good explanation of some the finer points of science...

It's been a while since I read it the last maybe I should read it
again soon...but the ocassion of this post is a good opportunity to ask a few
questions and make a few comments...unfortunately based on memory.

Lerner questions quantum mechanics if I recall correctly?....or at least it's well as relativity?....

Personally I've not been convinced of either...perhaps because I had
difficulty following the explanations...

Lerner's explanation I COULD follow...and plasma filaments seem well as being experimentally verifiable I belelive?
