This has all been fully explained before.  Why don't you take a look at
GOTTSCHALK v. BENSON, 409 U.S. 63 (1972) and tell us what part you have
questions about?

1972...... yeah right..

wasn't this like before the Y2K problem?.... oh, well yes it was!

Point being, there exist this problem along the lines of nearsightedness, shortsightdness...

this doesn't change the fact that there is a identifiable and appliable physics to abstraction creating and use.

the caselaw you pointed to doesn't acknowledge it, as it even today computer science hasn't.

There was a time when it was the church with control over the population, but they did not accept some perspectives and even now established facts, as I mentioned in another post, it wasn't until 1990 that the catholic church exorerated (sp?) Galelio (sp?) for his science of the earth revolving around teh sun. The Romans .... the government, could have helped bring about the adoption of the hindu-arabic decimal system.... but they didn't.... how can nothing have value re: the zero place holder...

I didn't have the time to fully read the link in posting this but what I did read suggest the courts, unlike the catholic church, might very well be open to seriously considering and properly acting upon such a "physics of abstrasction" long as we can keep the money carrot out of the picture (directly or indirectly -- ie. lobbying and honest science don't mix...)
