Sir Roger Penrose


He was at Powells technical books tonight. I got my question answered after the question, and answer session was over :-). For those who care it was about whether his twister theory used ordinary complex numbers or higher order ones such as quaternions. He is a neat guy, and I felt smart for understanding the little bits that I did. He is so far beyond me that I feel like I would need a few degrees to even have much of a conversation with him. I think I actually got more than five minutes of his time to myself. I got the impression that because of his standing people ask him very challenging questions on a regular basis, and that because of this he has a constant source of inspiration.
