The trouble with this guy and Hoagland and the various of them is the same as the man portrayed in the movie Pi (which I thought was terrible btw but worth watching the first 1/2 to see the point:P)..
You can "prove" anything when you are looking for an answer.. In the 19th century, statisticians "proved" that the height of the mini-skirt was directly related to the performance of the stock market.. Ooook.
This book is a nice little fantasy but I wouldn't take it too seriously.. Could he be right? Sure why not.. But given enough time, I could sit down and "prove" that the 1 dollar bill is responsible for the Challenger explosion.
Moral: Don't be so open-minded you let your brains fall out.
