Responses from Careful Universe
1) Remember folks, it's just a 'guess.'

2) According to Aurino,that is. But it's not whether you are a reductionist, but how far past all the warning signs you take your reductionism.

3) He thinks it can be done. But will he demonstrate his own theory step by step to that conclusion. After all, that's what reducing does... but he probably won't....If only he would try to do so and prove me wrong...but then we would easily point out the obvious flaws in the way his model translates to biochemistry and cosmological physics. That reductionist assertion is lazy-minded BUNK, and we already have plenty of that on this forum. So you are in the right place. BUNK-land.

4) "The real question is, so what?" This should have an internet acronym. "TRQISW?" Good point, Aurino!

Warm but not hot,
