What's this about naming a particle after us?
As you'll learn in the book, physicists have a pretty good list of all the matter particles that have been found so far. But it remains a mystery how many different types of particles there are and what many of them are for. Therefore, it's perfectly feasible for us to hypothesize particles that bear a striking resemblance to you and whose behavior eerily seems to match your personal quirks.

What's this about an anti-matter version of us?
As you'll learn in the book, every matter particle in nature has an anti-matter version of itself. Anti-matter particles behave exactly like regular particles (except they have opposite charge) and can even form anti-atoms, and possibly anti-molecules and anti-people. Somewhere in the Universe, there could be an exact version of you, but made out of anti-matter!

If everyone in my lab buys a copy of your book, does that increase the chances you'll make a comic out of our research?
Why yes, yes it does.
