The quiton/perceptron approach appears to offer a most extensive area for further investigation, and it is hoped that the physicists will interest themselves in the concept.  It offers explanations for the problems long posed by ontology, and unifies the bases of science and metaphysics.

         We state categorically that the theory explains what electric charge is, why like charges repel, and why unlike charges attract.  In addition, since all phenomena are perceptron outputs, the theory indicates that multiple effects which are very close in time or distance will interfere with each other due to turbulent switching;  i. e., conservation of mass/energy holds only as long as no switch interference exists.  Turbulent switching can possibly disrupt all known physical laws.  Unexpectedly strong forces, such as nuclear force, might in fact result from this effect.  Other implications include possibility of travel faster than the speed of light (deBroglie waves do this now) and of travel back and forth in "time."

         Since both laboratory instruments and human sensory apparatuses are perceptrons and differentiate reality, investigations of physical phenomena should include the laws of the perceptron as well as the laws of the perceived phenomena.
