I know that you imagine everything wrapped in TGD surfaces. I too see
a wrapping, but by event-horizons. The wrapping for our bodies and brains
etc., I suggest, is at the level of our atoms and molecules. The geometric
spacetime has the concept of event-horizon, I admit that it is likely to be a
purely relativistic phenomenon. What happens if you wrap a TGD surface
around a spherical mass (M) of radius (R), such that R = GM/c^2 ?
