Pete- I agree that I am usually skeptical about things with the word quantum in the title. Seems a lot of BS fits into that bag.
Yes it is Johnjoe, I like his writing because it is clear. He tells me that his next book will be on Occum's Razor, by the way. Probably excellent.
Pete, g, TGGP-- I am an independent researcher and it is becoming obvious to me that the methods I have developed are not ordinary. This doesn't really surprise me since the one thing that people who know me well can agree on is that "You're not like other people." (Sometimes they mean that as a compliment- I hope...)
Here is a web address that can be of value
The original discussion about TB in particular comes from
Hall-- Molecular Microbiology 33 pages 982-993. (I'm not sure how available that is to you.)
The notion that competent cells do not fit well with the "random mutation + natrual selection" model of evolution is not new or particularly controversial with those who know of the phenomena. How to deal with the phenomena is up in the air-- This is the area of science where new discoveries and new theories are made-- the stuff I like.
Also these are the areas where personal bias is most likely to be engaged and needed to be overcome-- thus my interest in this particular site.
