(asciilifeform) trinque: asciilifeform: interesting, at any rate he's put together a
cult to try to run the cellular physics over the line
(asciilifeform) Aerthean: In this case I think the guy either met or knew people close to
Wolfram, so unlikely to change. I'm not sure he even has to pay for his copy.

Wolfram's. He didn't invent cyclic tag systems, and he didn't come up with the incredibly intricate construction needed to implement them in Rule 110. This was done rather by one Matthew Cook, while working in

wolfram to drink himself to death, by properly demonstrating 'cellular physics' (tm) (r) where he failed.
(trilema) mircea_popescu: i suppose the fiat world has burned these poor people so consistently (see the plouffe thing recently discussed, see the notorious
wolfram thing etc) it's just the default expectation. and then ~bitcoin~ is the scam.

Wolfram's book. It is going to set the field back by years. On the one hand, scientists in other fields are going to think we're all crackpots like him.
