View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Half of a hypothetical planet is on a world-wide web, the other half is not. The Reds try to understand the Blues (connected secretly) in terms of normal human behavior. They find that they behave like quantum particles. The Red Scientists eventually discover that the blues share information much as quantum Particles do. The story is a tongue-in-cheek allegory for the development of interpretations of quantum theory. Major players are Halbert Zweistein (Einstein), Stan Exciting (Neils Bohr), and Devon Baum (David Bohm)--the 'wizard of odds'.

From the Publisher:

Don't miss a classic in the making. Dr. Petersen, physics professor, musician, and comic, gives us a work to stand alongside Plato's 'Allegory of the Cave' and a 'Funny Thing Happened on the Way To The Forum'. This is new-science with a funnybone.

From the Author:

You be a proton and I'll be an electron... We'll make some chemistry.
