Told ya...I am, as many of you who've read Realist Magic know, fascinated by quantum theory and its implications for causality theory (the fact that reality isn't a mechanism in any sense whatsoever). So this is really really nice. It adds to the other quantum-theoretical events that happen including the detail of how photosynthesis works.
I think Schrödinger's What Is Life? is due for a dusting and a nice new test drive, don't you?
This is all happening because of my awesome Ph.D. student Derek Woods--watch out world, he is coming!!
