Fact is, the quantum wave, even if viewed only as a wave of knowledge, collapses. That’s weird. So was the wave not a wave of knowledge? Clearly nonlocal effects show that the fact ACTS AT A DISTANCE (this was shown explicitly by experiments of Zeillinger et al. in Austria; I think he got the Wolf Prize in physics for this and related work). What Einstein called “spooky interaction at a distance”. Einstein could view it as “incompleteness”, as he HOPED. However, we now know that there is no incompleteness in the sense that Quantum Mechanics overlooked a local hidden variable theory.

Countless Bell-Bohm EPR style experiments have demonstrated this conclusively. It turns out that NONLOCALITY is fundamental to biology, and, as all Quantum Computer engineers know, to the Quantum Computers (which are now real devices). OK, more later, I’am actually writing a full essay on it…

So let’s do some Einstein psychoanalysis here. Psychoanalysis is the number one weapon of philosophers.

Then it does its mysterious thing (I think it is a highly nonlinear mess, which thresholds of singularization if some curvature gets beyond a limit, a bit as if it were a black hole of sorts, but that’s irrelevant to the problem at hand). That mysterious thing leads to the quantum collapse of W + S on just one spin.

Very interesting what you say about enzymes. More water for my mill. Got to run, will get back to that latter

Now, suppose that is true, one of the first enzymes needed is one to break down failed and useless protein so that you can get more guesses. The probability of the more common enzyme to do that is 2 in 39^315, which is a somewhat bigger number. (Which is why I am convinced that hypothesis is wrong.)

And as far as Puthoff and Targ, well, I was at Stanford U somewhat after they made fools of themselves with demonstrating Uri Geller “psychic” powers. They were at SRI (Stanford Research Institute), and those were not SRI days’ of glory…

Anyway, let me bask in the comfort of having being told I was “mainstream”. I was told all too many times by well-known mathematicians and philosophers that I was a monster, even abnormal by the most monstrous standards…

BTW, “Torsion” has a strict mathematical meaning in differential geometry: one can have curvature without torsion, and reciprocally. Standard GR has zero torsion, it’s all about curvature.

Take a program, consisting of binary codes, and it’s logical structure enabling to us to play a computer game. What is the reality in the game? The binary structure? The logical structure, that interconnects those binary codes in certain way and not other way? Or is it the game itself?

This analogy can be applied to the mathematics versus nature, while nature is the game, mathematics is the logical structure of its elements, meaning the numbers themselves and the capacity to add them to each other. All the rest comes out of it.

As to mathematics, two is more than one and one. It is also the meaning of + and =. When comprehending two, we comprehend all these elements. The + and = are as much elementary to mathematics as the 1.

Noone governs nobody. Not mathematics the nature and not vice versa. The nature just can’t be not logical not mathematical. Otherwise the chaos would take over the existence. Existence is order. Without order there wouldn’t be existence. Amazingly the Bible in it’s first sentence got it right. At beginning there was chaos, then by separation an order was created and the existence came to be. The order of nature is mathematical.
