“‘…Physicists from now on, when pondering the secrets of the Cosmos, factor in not only energy and matter and time ,but something very new and beautiful, which is human awareness.’

Trout paused, ensuring with the ball of this left thumb that his upper dental plate would not slip when he said his last words to us that enchanted evening.

All was well with his teeth. This was his finale: ‘I have thought of a better word than awareness.’ he said ‘Let us call it soul.” He paused.

“Ting-a-ling?” he said.
