After a harrowing drive down to Monterey including missed exits, near collisions, and empty gas tanks in the fast lane of CA-I808 I’m here safe and sound. I was fighting to stay awake while presenting the WPI poster last night, and snuck out a little early to get some sleep. Went for a nice run this morning along the boardwalk, listening to crashing waves and NPR. It was a good session this morning with Ara Apkarian giving a great talk on some 4 color 4 wave mixing experiments that were able to highlight some key fundamental features of quantum mechanics such as nonlocality, entanglement, and coherence. In addition they would make a great application of my theory. Off to more lectures.
