some things can’t be fully isolated from their environments, which necessarily INCLUDES researchers, measuring tools, etc.

Ah ok – yes, After about 30 seconds, I looked him up and yes, I know of him. He has some unorthodox notions about cellular memory.

His ideas have ‘resonated’ (pun intended) with me in the past. While i don’t entirely agree with him, I do think that there’s a strong relationship between function and … oh what’s that magic word… I keep forgetting it… Ah! Yes, Affordances.

I have similar ideas regarding the importance of … ugh what’s that word I’m forgetting … ah! Hysteresis in nature. Past inputs contribute to and influence current behavior and with all systems being ultimately OPEN systems, not all past inputs _can_ be accounted for, especially in systems that are quite complex.

In short, similar to the limitations of “lab” – the concept of pure objectivity; one of the greater findings of the post Einstein Quantum Physics. It’s not the uncertainty that is so amazing; it is that some things can’t be fully isolated from their environments, which necessarily INCLUDES researchers, measuring tools, etc.

I haven’t investigated him 100%; I remember there being SOMETHING in his ideas that made me go, “Ok, stop here. This is where he departs. Don’t get sucked into this logic chain”

Departs from what? I don’t know. Just a sense. I’m careful with fully adopting “completed ideas” once I find the “fatal flaw”.
