One way to hold with this Bohr dictum
and also earnestly face, I guess it is
the paradox or conflict arising with  
the Kochen-Specker theorem, as you write
above, Lawrence, of, among other
requirements,  needing or expecting
an odd nine whereas the standard or
accepted mathematical formulation
only provides an even eight, is
summarized below.

Hopefully, readers can pardon  my
non-standard notation which
I will claim here today are
largely required by both

1. The solution, let's say, begins with
eight unit vectors pointing outward
from a center point to the vertices
of a cube.

2. The next step is to sequentially,
perhaps imaginatively,
one-half rotate, oscillate or
re-orient each of the eight
unit vectors, end-for-end, so as
to form the nine, let's call them,
'states', of this eight-unit-vector
