While not music related, I thought it worth posting here.  One of the most amazing people on the planet has passed.

This news sucks very much...and I have actually read his book several times; if you have it, go back to it as it makes more sense on repeated reads ( as much as quantum physics ever makes sense!)

A mind on a level (at least) with Euclid, Copernicus & Galileo; by far the best of our time.
A massive loss for humanity.

Amazingly enough, when he was young he did things like row on a college team, etc. If I was confined into my mind the same way he was, I would probably go crazy. I certainly would not be solving the problems of the universe.
