Zero energy ontology of TGD combined with adelic physics leads to a vision that the sequences of state function reductions implies a mathematical evolution in the sense that the extensions of rationals characterizing the space-time region increases gradually. This induces the increase of algebraic complexity implying time evolution as the analog of biological evolution.
The dimension of extension corresponds to an effective Planck constant assumed to label dark matter as phases of ordinary matter. Therefore quantum coherence lengths increase in this evolution.
This generalization of the idea of Connes is discussed in the framework provided by the recent view about TGD. In particular, the inclusion hierarchies of hyper-finite factors, the extension hierarchies of rationals, and fractal inclusion hierarchies of subalgebras of supersymplectic algebra isomorphic with the entire algebra are proposed to be more or less one and the same thing in TGD framework.
