nice interview with Nitin:

We've only known each other two seconds, and already Nitin Sawhney is getting down to the essentials. "Do you know the Heisenberg uncertainty principle?" I start to sweat. "It's about the idea that if you look at matter at its most fundamental level, if you try to look at electrons you have to bombard them with electrons through an electron microscope in order to view them, but if you do that you alter the path of the electrons so you can't observe them directly. You have to observe them indirectly, and the only way you can do that is to look at their path. So the principle is that you can't actually observe what's around you from an objective perspective because you're always participating in the event. That's very much like how Hinduism works - everything is connected and you are always participating."
