The patent process is designed to provide an inventor with certain legal
rights regarding the use of his invention by others.

To attempt to patent a scientific theory (regardless of its scientific
merits or lack thereof) in the guise of a "model process" is both
frivolous and bizarre.  I am at a loss to understand the motivations of
the original poster in doing this.

On the other hand, I did not intend to "shut down" discussion of the
actual hypotheses presented.
