Dear Philippe,

May I suggest the following correction of the second version of your "Contextual objectivity and quantum holism", quant-ph/0301001, p. 2:

It may be possible to claim that we cannot see such superpositions because the overall evolution of the (pure) quantum state can not be linear. However, these superpositions must remain around there, lingering "outside" the Hilbert space, to be available for the next actualization by measurement.

The global properties that are *not* carried by properties of individual particles (quant-ph/0301001, p. 3) are embodied in a holistic entity called Holon (I. Raptis, private communication) which could provide (i) an *exact* solution to the measurement problem in QM without any contradictions with STR, (ii) a solution to the problem of time in canonical quantum gravity, and (iii) a solution to the inner product problem, that is, the problem of fixing the inner product in the Hilbert space of physical states by requiring that it is both invariant under Diff(M) and conserved in time.

In what time? The time of the Holon, of course! You can prove it with your brain. Please see

Otherwise the apparent "points" in our macro-world of tables and chairs would be "a creation outside of the laws of Nature" ("eine ausserhalb der Naturgesetze stehende Schöpfung", W. Pauli).

I will appreciate the feedback from your colleagues as well. No need to waste billions of euro and dollars for chasing the putative Higgs boson(s),

The cancellation of quantum corrections, which is the crux of the mass hierarchy problem of the standard model, can be taken care by the Holon, not by some new, nonlinearly realized symmetry: "since virtual particles with arbitrarily large energies are allowed in quantum mechanics, it seems that quantum corrections make the mass of the Higgs particle arbitrarily large as well",

Sorry I can't keep this issue private, there is too much money at stake -- taxpayers' money. Moreover, there is another can of worms associated with the error corrections in the so-called quantum computing,

Many people believe that the Holon can be elevated at the scale of tables and chairs, and manipulated locally, in line with STR. Surely this is what our brain does, not some dead "quantum computer".

A penny for your thoughts! It may worth billions.
