My story is very personal. The seed for the story comes from a glimmer of home I witnessed at Harvard when I saw a Palestinian and an Israeli scientist working together. At the time, I spoke Arabic very well and helped the Palestinian translate his lectures from Arabic to English. His research was similar to what I discuss, but not the same. I don’t know science at all or math. I had to have someone help me with the math equations and, in fact, three of the equations were wrong in the book. I have since corrected them in the current PDF.
