Selected Research – All Gifts, Bestowed

I went through a mountain of material leading up to and during the process of writing this book (in both video and written form).  When I finished writing it I thought it might be nice to include a selection of the most relevant research material at the end so that readers could delve deeper into some of the concepts explored.

Assuming the reader would want to do so at the close of the novel, of course…

The only problem, obviously, is that we couldn’t add this information to the audio book.  Try typing in a URL as it’s dictated to you sometime and you’ll see why.

So, for all of you good people out there who prefer audio as their primary format, here is that list.  As noted, the list is not exhaustive to what I originally examined.  It is, in my opinion, some of the more approachable material on the subjects presented – this despite the fact that much of the “homogenized” material on quantum computers is still rather lacking…
