Usually I have a reasonable understanding of most of what he talks about with his guests but in this case although I had an illusion of comprehension for the first few minutes, after that I had absolutely no idea what they were talking about. Individually I knew most of the words but in the order they came, they could as well have been gibberish. It was quite humbling.

Sean Carroll seemed to understand it though, from some of his comments, unless he was faking it, which I'd doubt. It was also much longer than most of his Mindscape episodes, other than the AMAs, so I guess he found it genuinely interesting.

Nice. I get so many physics pods in my email, it becomes impossible to choose. I know that's in there somewhere, so off to trawl it is.

When this clicked, it was like the moment Bell Inequality violations first made sense. There really is something about this that I can't quite put my finger on.
