Textbooks of quantum mechanics tell us that quantum particles are either bosons

or fermions. Now they need to be revised, to make room for anyons. Anyons are

a new kind of particle, with a kind of memory. I named them, and I have been

exploring their properties theoretically since the 1980s. Now, in path-breaking

experiments, anyons have at last been observed. I will discuss the universe of ideas

around anyons, using pictures rather than equations and emphasizing broad concepts

rather than technical details.
