Ed,

Well, it looks like you need one, though. And, yes, we can
expect new big discoveries in physics.

I suggest that you read my article in IUR, as a little
beginning. And then a couple of good books. For instance those
of Brian Greene and Michio Kaku.

Another interesting physicist seems to be Lisa Randall, of
Princeton University.

But I admit I cannot go much farther to help.

Well, I am afraid your remark applies to you, Ed.
