Thank you very much for that feedback; those are all good points and I will incorporate it into a new and improved version.

Do you think it would be clearer if instead of a block of wood I used a very small (but light absorbing object), like a dust mote, or a single atom, etc. (something that more intuitively could be moved by light?)

Perhaps I could built up with multiple levels, first the light hits an electron, which puts it into two states, and gives it two momentums, then the electron hits a phosphorescent screen, which puts it into multiple states of illumination, and then the person looking at the screeen is finally put into two states?
```

That would be nice I think.

One more remark, you seem to avoid formula, at all cost, including "a(b +c) = ab+ ac". Of course I am a mathematician, and formula help them. I know some non mathematicians (and publishers) run away from any presence of formula, but it seems some simple one sum up so well what happend (cf one of Albert explanation of the interferometer ..).

Anyway, noce work!,

- It's not obvious what's going on when the block of wood turns into
two. Even expecting the multiple outcomes, one does not intuitively
expect a beam of light to move a block of wood. I don't mind the
exaggeration but I suggest you make it explicit in the text and
indicate displacement in the figure somehow;

- Numbering figures would be a great improvement;

- You should sign your work!

Best,
Telmo.
