What benefit would it give? What would it replace? This seems to me to
solve a problem that has already solved, but in an obfuscated way
filled with new age buzzwords.

"Syntropic Randomness is a co-creative act between Man, Machine, and
Universe." - exactly how high do you have to be to write such things?

Has this ever been an issue? You mention dependency on ALU
architectures while still talking about clock cycles in your comments
- are these some kind of virtual clock cycles then?

what kind of obfuscation protocols?

Yeah, I think a paper is necessary here..
