Linda C. (Seagull) reviewed Who Wrote the Bible Code? : A Physicist Probes the Current Controversy on
READING BETWEEN THE LINES. Reading between the lines can get you in trouble. I discovered this when my wife, Eunice, confronted me about a nude model named Denice. "I found this note on your desk," Eunice said. "Who's Denice? Where did you meet this nude model?
Mystified, I grabbed the sheet of paper and stared at it. My own hand scribbling--no doubt about it. I should mention that I'm a computational physicist, and I've spent the last year writing a large software system to analyze networks of interacting devices.
I jabbed my finger at one of the words. "That letter is a v, not an n," I said. "The word is 'Device,' not 'Denice." Eunice's mouth twitched, a sure sign that she was trying not to smile. "Okay...maybe. But what about the nude model?"
"This word is 'node,' not 'nude,'" I said. "These notes are all about networds--devices, nodes, models. Besides, Denise is spelled with an s, not a c." At that point Eunice broke out laughing and quit teasing me about my bad handwriting.
Which brings me to the topic of this book....(Chapter 1)
