    I wouldn't worry, the abstract indicates that this is pseudoscientific rambling and nothing more.
    Claiming that a few correlations can magically be turned into 'reification' using abstruse terms and methods gets us nowhere.

    It does read as if someone's been trying to teach their AI to draft articles in preparation for the beginning of April.
