A chaotic 1-D gas: Some implications

A 1-D classical gas with maximal chaos is described. It supports many simplified (color-coded) chemical reactions - including far-from-equilibrium dissipative structures. A proposed example generates a limit cycle. Its excitable analogue is a model observer. Gibbs symmetry invariably gives rise to a substitute Hamiltonian. The resulting pseudo-reversibility implies, for the model observer, that all external objects are subject to Nelson stochasticity and hence quantum mechanics.
