    Ah, yes, this rings very true and I think the word bridges our two different approaches to the same essential isness …<br /><br />While reading your response, I&#39;m simultaneously doing a review of a particularly science ladden Doctor Who box set (lots of [w]hooey about parallel universes, the multiverse etc.) and somehow this uncommon (for me) foray into the realm of quantum physics is
