I read the sentence many times and it still does not make sense to me.
Should I read it again?

What is:
"the union of all portion of UD*  in which my "preparing coffee" state
You define UD* as "the the execution of the UD, an infinite three
dimensional cone in case the UD is implemented in a two dimensional cellular
automaton). Is the cone in space, time, or what? Why three dimensions? Why
not four or five? Where are these dimensions coming from? The sentence is
not too long... it's just that it assumes too much background. Is it the
union of UD* or the union of the outputs of UD*? Is UD* a cellular automaton
or is it a set of all cellular automatons with particular properties? How
does UD* relate to UD? Is it the complement, the conjugate, the inverse, or

In any case, the whole issue of restricting an implementation to a
particular cellular automaton in any dimensional configuration is abhorrent
to me. If finite inputs are considered any  automaton can be replaced with a
huge look up table. And as any electrical engineer knows, any automaton,
Turing machine or computer can be implemented by circuits consisting solely
of  NAND gates (with additional initialization levels of 0 and 1.) That's
it. Just NAND gates. Pure logic. No three dimensional cones or any other
kinds of cones.

Yeah, I sympathize, English sometimes puts s in the singular and no s in the
plural! Very confusing. I have the same problems sometime. :-)
