Quantum randomness emerging under gravitational nonlinearity
This actually argues in favor of the LFSR method, since it is better to know and to control the de(cid:12)ciencies of a random number generator than to rely on fancy methods which are basically justi(cid:12)ed by empirical observations.

A logic road from special relativity to general relativity
