Thanks for this find. Above my head, but I hope it leads to something big. I wonder if these Russian researchers wrote or had their article translated into English. I say this because Physical Review Letters is published by the American Physical Society.

“Any universe simple enough to be understood is too simple to produce a mind able to understand it."
Is Barlow right?
