Such random factors cannot have any effect on the processes that I'm interested
in. If they did, you would develop into a human or a crocodile depending of
whether your mother lived in a cold or warm climate, which is not the case.
There are many state machines involved here. The fundamental microsequencer,
the ribosoma FSM, has the DNA code as its input, fed into into it sequentially
two bits at a time. I.e., all of its inputs are fixed by the program. It does
different things based on different initial states, i.e., different starting
addresses. The program is always there and always the same, different
development processes take place by executing different sections of the code
and loading different values into the program counter. The execution of
different sections of the microcode and handling its output is the job of the
higher-level state machines. Locating all subroutines in this program and
writing a top-level program to call them where necessary is the key to fixing
virtually any damage and curing virtually any disease.

> But as for communism - here you have rather private goal to achieve.

I perfectly understand that the technology I want for my girl is actually
nothing less than a complete revolution in science, a possible cure for all
diseases, etc., and will have unimaginable ramifications for all humankind. And
maybe even more than humankind. Being a programmer I will never buy an idea
that an 800 MB program could come out of vacuum, and I thus strongly believe in
the existence of extraterrestrial life and intelligence.

This is why I'm developing this as free software. As for Communism and having a
private goal, remember all those stories about Komsomol and Young Communists:
love was often a factor. :-)

Well, I am hoping to get some sponsors, assuming that there must be a lot of
people who would need this kind of technology very much. But there may very
well be obstacles. Just think of the ethical, social, and political
implications of technology for cloning of arbitrary human parts, etc. But I
cannot get into those issues, I need my girl restored, regardless of what
someone may do with the technology later. This is how free software is
developed: developers usually have their own need for it, and they then let the
rest of the world use the results of their work as they see fit.

If those murderous doctors didn't damage my girl, definitely I would never even
think of this. But since they did, my love for her and my confidence in my
ability to do the project require me to do it.

> Thanks for sharing this story.

I am sharing this story publicly because of the magnitude and eventual
ramifications of the project. A project of such magnitude with such
ramifications *must* be public, the people have the right to know about such
projects, just like about UFOs and government conspiracies. Even as my
motivation for the project is very personal, the project itself must be public,
whatever the motivation. Why am I sharing my motivation? Well, I have to prove
my credibility, and part of it is proving that I won't just drop the project
and disappear in the middle of the night, and for that I have to share my
motivation, however uncomfortable it may be for me (it is).
