Thanks for the link Ben. I'll have a read. Be

assured that there is a strong connection between

quantum chaos and the Riemann Hypothesis.

Now I just need a way to calculate the probability of

clearing the desk in the card game Klondike ;)

PS I do not seriously think I can solve Riemann. But

since I've started looking into FAI theory, I figured

what the heck I may as well look into a second

impossibly hard problem as well. FAI theory and

Riemann are really just hobbies for me though ;)

I suspect that the sort of *horribly hard* maths

behind Riemann is of a comparable level of difficulty

to the formal maths behind FAI theory. So if I can't

solve Riemann, I can forget about FAI ;)

Regarding FAI, I suspect that we are now at about the

point that Einstein was regarding Relativity at the

trun of the 20th century, or the founders of QM were

regarding QM theory circa 1910. We have a good idea

of the fundamental principles behind FAI, but now the

principles need to be formalized into hard maths. I

note that the process of working out the maths seems

to take around 15-20, once the fundamental principles

are known. For instance, it took Einstein from 1900

to 1916 for Relativity, and the founders of QM from

1910 to around 1930 for QM. This suggests that at a

minimum, we are still 15-20 years away from

Singularity.
