Remember that one of the most beautiful thing in the AUDA is
that knowledge is only "meta-formalised", and that no machine
can recognize her "definition of knowledge" (only G* can do that).
It is linked to the Benaceraff reconstruction of Lucas argument ...

We should discussed that. I am not convinced by your derivation of the
linear feature of QM. There is also part of geometry you take for granted.
But we are on similar track, no doubt.

I just use the Turing-Tropic Principle instead, and I avoid bayesian
probability and its undefined reference frame.
