How mass-energy acts as a phase operator, or field term, on the waves of other overlapping bosons
Our interpretation of what degeneracy pressure is, and how to overcome it.
The statistical effect that a massive body has on wave collapse.
Our constitution for a fermion allows its bosons to independently escape a 'probabilistic' event horizon (not a strict Schwarzschild radius), and for matter to re-encode itself into a form that may escape.
