Dr. Edgar Allan Wright's Comments About Yuri

Dr. Wright posted to the operation_essex group on Nov. 13, 2013.

I find it quite interesting and somewhat nostalgic to see a dialogue between Lightman, Schubert and Nagassa. That is the kind of conversation that was held long ago. I can't remember which ones of them were there and which weren't. Lightman had to be there. Much younger, of course. And Nagassa… Always part feral… Part advanced intellect. Interesting mix. He'd be like Pan or a minotaur or something. Feral is not the right word. Uncontacted. Yes. Uncontacted.

He followed up in the comments on his post with this

He did not study with the Anaztec or the Nazteka, he was born with them. His father was a Soviet Scientist. Working on Astro Espionage. They build an observatory high in the Andes either to spy on U.S. satellites or to gain astrological insight (there are different stories on this), and Yuri was raised there.

I imagine that it would be like having your father be a lighthouse keeper.

Anyway, there was an un-contacted tribe nearby. Yuri played with the children of the tribe, and learned from them. Here's what is interesting; they are believed to be the last of a dying tribe that was killed with the Shaper self-destruct code – a cycle that began with the Cahokians. My suspicion is that Lightman's skill at interpreting Glyphs came from Yuri.

Quantum Entanglement

On the 19th of February Yuri posted this

"In the standard explanation, two entangled particles are sent to the labs of physicists named Alice and Bob.
When Alice performs a measurement on her entangled particle, the fate of Bob’s particle is sealed. So if Alice 
tells Bob the result of her measurement, he instantly knows what the result would be of measuring his particle. 
He doesn’t need to bother doing the actual measurement."

A thought experiment:
What if we are observing the order of events wrong? What if Alice's observation was determined by Bob's
