While in junior high school, I fell in love with quantum physics after seeing a diagram of the double-slit experiment in John Gribbin’s book In Search for Schrodinger’s Cat. The experiment suggested that reality is far weirder than I had been taught. Although I didn't understand everything in the book, it was a clarifying moment on the statistical nature of reality. I have carried these ideas with me, and they have inspired me to view the world less deterministically and more intuitively.
