I loved this book even before it got into the connection between Buddhism (illusion of duality) and quantum physics (many worlds, illusion of wave function collapse). Also, really digging these books that sprinkle in metafictional elements without being meta-for-meta’s sake. I mean, I’m glad if on a winter’s night a traveler exists but it’s kind of like a 7 minute guitar solo.

It’s like if Primer was a book (but good).
When I told @chasingthwind about Lathe, he recommended this one. It was really cool to read them back-to-back; they are similar in strange ways. Also reminded me of The Man From Earth, which is on Netflix and also very good.
So good. Pretty sure Ursula K. Le Guin is my favorite author now, which is funny because she was my favorite author when I was in 7th grade too.
