about

“Many computer programs contain a random number generator as a component of their algorithms. Since the human mind is essentially a computer program run on a phenomenally complex set of hardware, I hypothesize that, somewhere in the forest of synapses that comprise the neural net, we will find an analogous system at work.”

Larkin was expounding again. He stood there in his blue jeans and black leather jacket, his hands on his hips, shoulders thrust back, his bright blue eyes roving across the assembled crowd of students and fellow professors. From where I stood, I could see them leaning towards him like flowers straining toward the sun.

Larkin was like the sun. His seductive charm and blinding intellect shone on you and you felt nourished and inspired. I had felt that way months ago when I first met him. He had smiled at me, a fierce grin, and had spoken to me as though I were an equal, as though my ideas were as important as his, even though he was a Nobel Laureate and I was not. The longer I knew him, the more I realized that he treated everyone this way. It was his secret method of accessing energy. He made you feel that you were his compatriot, his brother-in-arms in the great struggle against ignorance, and, after that, you would do anything for him...
