Reminder: first person plural point of views arise when entire population of machines are multiplied, like in the quantum MWI. In that case the indeterminacy is sharable, (like in quantum computing, or like in EPR-Bell type of experiences). Von Weizsaecker's sentence is third or first-plural approach. I don't know. I would bet on first-plural. The existence of empirical quantum indeterminacy is evidence that we share some sort of self-multiplication "since a long time". Of course "natural science" is an ambiguous experience. I suppose you mean "Human Natural Science". God's treatise on General Possible Science belongs to Babel Library in Plato Heaven, out of time. Math makes possible (for relative UTMs) to glimpse a little bit of those atemporal realities. Note that the devil's treatise belong in Babel too, btw. Note also that no glimpse can be enough deep for making possible for a UTM to distinguish those treatise with *complete* confidence ... The sound universal machine cannot not be modest and prudent. Er... Sorry for the digression :-) Bruno
