You have not been here long enough to get the picture on all of us. I am
not sure, but at 51 I think I am the elder list member... Do not give up
on yourself with physics. As a child I heard about relativity and how no
one could understand it. On some level I thought I did (only learned later
how wrong I was) and I became convinced that I would be a physicist.
However, this was oh 1954 or 1955 and my 7th grade teacher told me that
physics was for boys and sent me off to do biology. He pretty much
convinced me I just did not have the wiring.

Just remember that Einstein did not do too well either. If you continue to
imagine and challenge yourself you will be ok with whatever you choose to do.

And welcome to the list. Your contribution on holography as been very
interesting. I was aware of the whole within the part aspect. How it is
being applied to computer memory is very interesting indeed.
