Today I took a day off from music and read a book about quantum
mechanics.... about the uncertainty principle, about particles that can
be in two opposing states simultaneously, and so forth.
The author gave an example of the difference between certainty and
uncertainty. Of course, it's unfair to lift a sentence out of context,
so please don't take this seriously.... you had to be there.... but
given all the messages that I've read here about the uncertainties of
Mozart's concerto, and since I was drinking a soda pop at the time, the
following statement made me snarf all over the book:

"In either case the raw material -- the sequence of notes, preserved in
black and white exactly as they left the composer's hand -- is
unambiguous and unarguable."

Does anyone want to buy a slightly stained copy of a good physics book?
