### Shnoll Effect Decade Later

#### Abstract

Shnoll and collaborators have discovered strange repeating patterns of random fluctuations of physical observables such as the number *n* of nuclear decays in a given time interval. Periodically occurring peaks for the distribution of the number *N*(*n*) of measurements producing *n* events in a series of measurements as a function of *n* is observed instead of a single peak. The positions of the peaks are not random and the patterns depend on position and time varying periodically in time scales possibly assignable to Earth-Sun and Earth-Moon gravitational interaction. These observations suggest a modification of the expected probability distributions but it is very difficult to imagine any physical mechanism in the standard physics framework. Rather, a universal deformation of predicted probability distributions could be in question requiring something analogous to the transition from classical physics to quantum physics. TGD inspired quantum measurement suggests a possible modification based on finite measurement resolution realized in terms of inclusions of hyper-finite factors of type *II _{1}*, and on adelic physics obtained as fusion of real physics and various p-adic physics characterized by primes
