Gack, no.... I could just as well call a gene a quanta of biology. I only
use the term as representing a finite undivisible unit- "The smallest
amount of a physical quantity that can exist independently."

I was more interested in the model of where we can draw divisions within
perception and behavior analogous to energy levels in physics, and
admittedly, only threw out my thought as a round-table starting point.
