Please clarify your approach for me. Where do these logical connections
come from? I.e., what causes or implies or governs them? What does it
mean that they are anthropically constrained to ensure (only?) rational
conscious experience? Does it mean that if you follow a series of links
you are guaranteed to obtain a rational conscious experience? Why?
After some more thought I am going to guess that your approach is to
start out with the points, and then for any series of points that
constitute a rational conscious experience, draw links between them. Is
this correct? If so what determines which series of points constitute a
rational conscious experience and which ones don't?
