Yes. (Number law) => (computer law) => (mind law) => (physical law) roughly speaking. > >Or - do you propose to show that, out of all computations, almost all of >them entail a regular physics and in particular a physics similar to >that which we observe, and from this physics arises our being and >consciousness according to the scientific processes which we already >understand. No. Actually most consistent continuations have white rabbits, and white noise. I am still open that the "little" program, if it exists is any QUD, i.e. any Quantum Universal Dovetailer. Not because it generates less white rabbits, but because it generates *much more* white rabbits! The reason is that it generates also much more -anti white rabbits- so that there are eliminated in the average. But even this "idea" I feel it necessary to deduce it from the "universal" interview. (look at my post to Georges Levy containing a partial technical result in that direction which gives the embryo of the reason why "point of views makes angles", and why interference of the "probabilities" are possibly necessary http://www.escribe.com/science/theory/m2855.html) Bruno
