What I meant that I have accepted that it is hopeless to even try
to change the attitudes of decision makers. Of course, I am working
seven days aweek to develop my theory but I do not spend time
in futile attempts to communicate it my colleagues in Finland or
attempts to publish it in respectable journals. I just accept
it as a fact that also theoretical physics is one possible Tao and
also it represents many levels of personal development.

Science becomes religion when some assumptions become dogmas.
Everyone has strong need to believe in dogmas. I indeed see
competion as real, it is! As a scientist I am happy that my theory of
consciousness predicts it. It also predicts also other modes of
consciousness. Asymptotic selves are selves whose all subsystems have
entanglement for which p-adic entanglement vanishes. No competion inside
this Buddha like self anymore!(;-)
Amusingly, the geometric counterpart of S=0 self (by ontology
recapitulates phylogeny metaphor) is closed 4-surface having finite
time duration. Classically and quantum mechanically this kind of surface
represents vacuum ('emptiness' of enlightened states of mind), pure mind.
Since these surfaces have no boundaries they cannot generate
join along boundaries bonds with other spacetime sheets
and hence have excellent opportunities to stay unentangled (to
stay wake-up). Since these spacetime surfaces are vacua, there are no
upper bounds for their density form physics. Universe might be full of
