"Only if it turns out that reality is actually nothing more than a holographic illusion created by the interplay of subatomic particles on a vast two-dimensional membrane."

Leslie Groves finds Thérèse de Dillmont's Encyclopedia of Needlework on a table in 1943.

Thérèse de Dillmont (October 10, 1846May 22, 1890) was an Austrian needleworker and writer. Her book, Encyclopedia of Needlework, was translated into many different languages.

In 1943, Leslie Groves found the Encyclopedia of Needlework on a table at the home that Dr. Emmett Brown was pretending was his own. When Groves asked Brown if he was a fan of needlework, Emmett responded by stating that he believed that anything could inspire a breakthrough, and that he didn't like to discount anything. Vannevar Bush appreciated that answer, which helped lead to Doc getting a job working on the Manhattan Project, despite the fact that the men were aware that the interview did not actually take place at Emmett's residence.
