There is a statement in this book – “My brain hurts” Yeah, even my brain was hurting, I had a splitting headache, but it was just not possible to leave the book. It forced me to think and re-think on every page.
Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, has written this book. It may be pure fiction, people would say that it is inspired by Matrix (What is real?) but it compels you to view things differently. My perspective of God, of universe, of free will, of light, of everything underwent a scrutiny. I am thinking differently now. Some may trash this book saying that it seems too far-fetched, but this does nothing but simplify everything and the simplification results in so complex and weird conclusions that it seems too hypothetical.
This book explains everything, barring Probability. As per the book “Only probability is inexplicable“. Probability has been deemed to be the force that governs the universe. “Probability is omnipotent and omnipresent. Probability is the guiding force of everything in the universe, living or nonliving, near or far, big or small, now or anytime.”
Try sleeping after reading this book; sleep would be light-years away. And if you fall asleep while reading this book, you can safely assume you are a second level human.

From the book:
- Religions are like different maps whose routes all lead to the collective good of society.
- The concept of ‘importance’ is a human one born out of our need to make choices for survival.
- Like the Easter Bunny, the past exists only in your mind.
- Everything that motivates living creatures is based on some weakness or flaw.
- In the long run — the extreme long run — probability is fixed and certain in its outcome. Probability forces the coin toss to be exactly fifty-fifty at some point, assuming you keep flipping forever.
- Rationality can’t explain our obsession with the Internet. The need to build the Internet comes from something inside us, something programmed, something we can’t resist.
