The views described in the paper form a radical counterpoint to both orthodox and heterodox 'academic' economics. Of course, orthodox and heterodox views are also valid, admitted, starting-discussion-points! But they are well-documented elsewhere.]

Formal symbolic brain-biophysics (2): Relativistic theory*Working Paper : PDF. 
[*NOTE: This early document from the Physics sub-topic of the Consciousness Program has an incomplete bibliography. It also uses a now-outdated version of the Center's novel symbolism for consciousness science. Despite these issues, it is included because it analyses a remarkably under-neglected topic: relativistic invariance of conscious experience (as a brain-property). Results from this paper are discussed in 'The physics and neuroscience of the observer, ...', above.]
