The Book Titled “Numerical Enigma” Written By an Author Ankit Parashar
About the Book
Numerical Enigma is a scientific mystery adventure novel narrating the quest for the Ultimate Theory of Everything: Uncovering the Secrets and Clues of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.
Life for Alex Gage, a 24 year old college football player, becomes a rollercoaster ride as he stumbles upon a strange letter written by Albert Einstein in 1945. Laura, daughter of professor of physics Mr. John Gable seems like the only person who can help him but, the professor is dead and Laura is nowhere to be found. In his heart stopping chase for the truth, he comes across mysterious clues — Letters dating back to 1940’s, hidden and mysterious propositions made by great scientist like Albert Einstein and Max Born, an absurd yet scientific theory and so on. He learns that one Man who holds the key to everything, is someone named David. Soon he finds himself unraveling the greatest theory that mankind has ever known but, he is not the only one seeking it.
Numerical Enigma merges the line between reality and belief. It does so by recounting facts and events in the history of scientific developments and theoritical physics, which in the end leaves you with a question, “Is it really possible?”
Clever Fox Publishing: Tell us something about your background.
Ankit Parashar: I dropped out from high school early in his life. After dropping out, I led an unconventional life working on creative arts like writing and film making years ago in Bombay until 2017 when I came to New Zealand. Currently I am independent researcher studying on quantum interpretation theories and is in process of writing an important research paper. Apart from that I acted on New Zealand television. Next of my creative piece and the current one which took almost 10 years in making
is “Numerical Enigma”
Clever Fox Publishing: When and how did you start your writing journey?
Ankit Parashar: I have always been a writer since may be when I was 10 or even before that, I use to write songs and poems. All formats of writing comes naturally to me — movie script, novel, non fiction, journalist, scientific ect. I wrote a movie script when he was 19. Later, while in Bombay I wrote plays and was able to write and direct the first horror monologue in theater titled “Cheekh” — it was mentioned on radio mirchi.
Clever Fox Publishing: What is your book all about?
Ankit Parashar: Numerical Enigma is a mystery/detective sci-fy which discloses the secret of a letter written by Albert Einstein in 1945. Numerical Enigma is a fictional story that speaks of parallel/multiple universe.
Clever Fox Publishing: What prompted you to write this book?
Ankit Parashar: The reason “Numerical Enigma” is important is because just like “Contact”, a novel by “Carl Sagan” in 1985 had bought people’s attention to “SETI” (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence — a field in theoretical physics), I believe there is a field in theoretical physics which requires attention today. I wish to achieve the same with my book for MWI (Many World Interpretation), a talked about subject in theoretical physics today. Also, another reason why this book is important is because it speaks
of an untold, unexplored and profound idea about parallel universe and supports it with 80 year old facts. At the core of parallel/multiple universe theory rests a formula known as the “Born Rule” also known as Probability Density Function”. My book attempts to throw new light on the concept and existence of “Born Rule” as well.
Clever Fox Publishing: How was your pre-writing experience? What urged you?
Ankit Parashar: I got my hands on something special in 2009 -2010 — “a letter written by Albert Einstein himself in 1945 to Ilse Rosenthal-Schneider. Einstein wrote that letter but as time passed he couldn’t find anything interesting and not much has been spoken about it ever since. As Einstein himself lost interest in his search so did the researchers and scientist around the world. This letter he wrote has time and again appeared but rarely has anyone tried to deeply study its consequences. In fact this is one of the my primary reason to reach out into the public domain. To speak about this letter Einstein wrote after almost 70 years. The letter talks about a number — “a constant” which represents a mysterious force like gravity. I can’t reveal all the interesting details but the constant Einstein spoke about and Born rule are connected. This mysterious force is real and all around us. The following letter made me research heavily on the foundational theories in science that makes our realityand at the same time it gave him an interesting story to share with the world in form
of a book titled — “Numerical Enigma”.
Clever Fox Publishing: How was your writing experience? Smooth or bumpy?
Ankit Parashar: A mix of both but overall it’s an experience difficult to put in words. I believe “Numerical Enigma” is a rare achievement and someday ideas provided in this book will inspire scientific breakthroughs. Such has been the case with any important literary work but it’s extremely difficult to accomplish. I am happy, I have done my job and I hope the world will recognize and remember me for it.
Clever Fox Publishing: How much did your publishers contribute? Did they ease the process for you?
Ankit Parashar: Yes, cleverfox streamlined the publishing for me in India and also helped digitally reach my book globally on different platforms which I was initially struggling with. Also, their staff were polite and provided assistance in proofreading at a much needed time.
Clever Fox Publishing: What is the reaction of your family and friends to you writing this book?
Ankit Parashar: They are extremely proud and surprised.
Clever Fox Publishing: Mention the people who supported you in this journey.
Ankit Parashar: This is extremely difficult to answer because the honest answer is no one except my parents. I have done everything from scratch from it’s foundational research to plotting the story, characters and narrative. The journey has been a bit lonesome but nonetheless fulfilling.
Clever Fox Publishing: How is your book going to impact the readers?
Ankit Parashar: I believe that at the very least I am able to entertain my readers while providing them a unique insight about the world we live in. In the end, I want them to enjoy the story and share it with everyone.
Clever Fox Publishing: How do you deal with negative comments if any?
Ankit Parashar: Criticism is important and feedback plays an important role in making any craft better. However, it is important to realize and differentiate positive criticism from the ocean of feedback and use that accordingly to make yourself better.
Clever Fox Publishing: Who are your literary mentors and role models?
Ankit Parashar: There are no literary mentors as such but along the way I picked up few books which I enjoyed like “Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown and “A brief history of time” by Stephen Hawking and “Constants of Nature” by John D Barrow.
Clever Fox Publishing: What are your upcoming writing ventures?
Ankit Parashar: I haven’t thought of anything yet but it would be something fiction again. May be a movie script, a novel etc. I let my readers take a guess.
Clever Fox Publishing: Any piece of advice for our aspiring writers?
Ankit Parashar: I think it’s extremely important for a good writer to have belief in their work and to keep there
