Dear Russell:

Here is the cascade rewritten:

Pj(i) = {Rj(Uj(i - 1)) + Self-delimiterj(i)} computes Uj(i)

with the added constraint that the cascade is everywhere elegant.

It is similar to:

1+ 1 = 2, 2 + 1 = 3, ... which eventually produces strings of arbitrary 
complexity despite its mechanical repetition.  The difference is that 1 + 1 
= 2, 2 + 1 = 3 etc is not everywhere elegant so does not meet a complexity 
wall.

Hal

Uj(i) is more complex than Uj(i -1)
