How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all? – Firesign Theater, 1969(1)
"Tell me, from your experience, have you ever been dead and then walked around the next day?"
"Have you ever read a peer-reviewed scientific paper that suggests that it is possible to do so?"
"Have you ever been in two places at once?"
Walton, David (2015-04-07). Superposition (p. 214). Prometheus Books. Kindle Edition.
David Walton answers the question posed by Firesign Theater back around the time Neal Armstrong was flubbing his first line on the moon in Superpostion, where quantum physics and the court system supercollide over the murder of a physicist who has unlocked the secret to manifesting quantum effects on a macro scale.
Did you just yawn when I said quantum effects? Stop that. It gets better.
From official release/information:
Product Description: A QUANTUM PHYSICS MURDER MYSTERY. Book One of a Mind-Bending, Near-Future, Science Fiction Technothriller Duology.
Jacob Kelley's family is turned upside down when an old friend turns up, waving a gun and babbling about an alien quantum intelligence. The mystery deepens when the friend is found dead in an underground bunker…apparently murdered the night he appeared at Jacob's house. Jacob is arrested for the murder and put on trial.
As the details of the crime slowly come to light, the weave of reality becomes ever more tangled, twisted by a miraculous new technology and a quantum creature unconstrained by the normal limits of space and matter. With the help of his daughter, Alessandra, Jacob must find the true murderer before the creature destroys his family and everything he loves.
