Miss sent me this GetPocket article about (fractal mathematician and) Richard Feynman's biographer James Gleick's discovery of a letter Feynman wrote to his wife 488 days after her death. The climax of the article is how un-Feynman-ish such a gesture was, given his reputation as an uncompromising materialist. A man who doesn't believe in afterlife pens a letter to his dead wife, so what do we make of this. On the advice of his psych officer at Los Alamos? Or perhaps from his own (very Feynman-ish) intuition that writing out his feelinsg would be healing.
