    An amazing and counter-intuitive set of discoveries. Information has a minimum "size" in the physical universe, it seems, and that has effects on everything from telecommunications theory to black holes. I read recently, in a mostly non-technical source, that noise is the limit of the bandwidth of any path. I have only the vaguest dim light as to what that means but this guy worked it all out. If I ever come back after this life I want to study physics and math.

    Probably I'll be a paramecium in my next life, though.

    There are quite a number of good books written about various topics in Physics. Most don't require much background in math to grasp the general ideas being put forth. There are also MOOCs

    Be careful what you wish for. I hear it's a tough market out there, for paramecia. I want to come back as a fully-qualified, professional mecium. No para-nonsense. The pay is much better -and the para-types do all the day-to-day slogging, so you don't have to...
