A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

NOVA: Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives

Mark Oliver Everett — known to music aficionados as E, of the critically acclaimed rock band, Eels — is the son of “one of the most important scientists of the 20th century,” according to Scientific American.
The late Hugh Everett III developed an abstruse and revolutionary theory — that every decision we make creates a parallel universe.

An outstanding episode of NOVA, featuring Mark’s own wistful songs, follows his quest to understand a man whom he lived with but never really knew. His journey leads him not only to his father’s friends and colleagues but also into the puzzling worlds of quantum physics and mental illness.
