Picture a foursome of (1) an ophthalmologist, (2) a poet, (3) a psycholinguist, (4) a nuclear physicist; chemistry lab mates. At playground’s edge — waiting to get called up to fill a needed baseball, soccer or football slot — we’d bunch by ourselves to talk ideas, concepts or books we were reading. Since then, nothing has changed except the speed of the go-go, ongoing, money-drunk world. It was physicist Bert Pohl’s passion for science fiction and the social ideas behind Orwell’s, Heinlein’s and Asimov’s storytelling that nudged me into the liberal arts.
