Alan Turing was a man deeply free.
The death odor of cyanide and the combination of genius and homosexuality might suggest yet another celebration in memory and in defense. But with Alan is terribly difficult to be devoted to the practice of martyrology

Four meetings with Ignazio Licata, a theoretical physicist, scientific director of ISEM (Institute for Scientific Methodology) in Palermo and teacher of "Complexity Theory" at the University of Messina, and contributor to "Il Sole 24 Ore" and director of '"Electronic Journal of Theoretical Physics." He was awarded with the Prize for Science Venus (2008) and the Targa Pirandello (2010). A student of David Bohm, he worked on models of pre-space non-local and quantized. He is currently working in the foundations of quantum theory, field theory, cognitive relationships between physics and computation. Has recently proposed the archaic theory of the universe, which describes the quantum phase "before" the big bang. Among his books in Italian: Observing the sphinx. Virtual reality in quantum physics (Rome, 2003); logic open mind (Turin, 2008); Complexity. A simple introduction (Palermo 2011).
