It is useful to have some things happen at once. Nature allows laughs and kisses and orgasms and dinners to be simultaneous.
But not everything. There's a list somewhere.

Any mention of how to get through the 'Time and Place' world in Braid? One level has me a bit stuck.

Did anyone else find this extremely uplifting?

Uplifting? I'd say reassuring. Good to know that the frontiers of physics continue to be defined by a rather large "?". I liken it to the occasional reports we get along the lines of, "This just in, Universe a gazillion times bigger than currently thought." Always leaves me feeling a little more free for some reason.
