Go for it!  I'm sure there are plenty of folks here who would do their
best to pick holes in and suggest improvements in any scheme you come
up with.  And the importance of having something concrete cannot
possibly be overstated - I'm sure each one of us has enough handwavy
ideas on this sort of topic for us all.  I know I do.


  Two things I learned for sure during a particularly intense acid
  trip in my own lost youth: (1) everything is a trivial special case
  of something else; and, (2) death is a bunch of blue spheres.
