My tutor recommended something called Cosmicomics after I showed him Joe Sparrow’s “Omnipathy#3.” I‘m in the middle of reading it, it’s a hard thing to explain so I’ve got Wikipedia to d so; “Cosmicomics is a book of short stories by Italo Calvino first published in Italian in 1965 and in English in 1968. Each story takes a scientific “fact” (though sometimes a falsehood by today’s understanding), and builds an imaginative story around it. An always extant being called Qfwfq narrates all of the stories save two, each of which is a memory of an event in the history of the universe. Qfwfq also narrates some stories in Calvino’s t zero.”(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmicomics)
It’s certainly interesting and I’ll about it more when I’m finished.
Also I found another TED talk about paper engineering that’s pretty awesome, at least for someone who’s beginning to realize they know very little about this.
