We have had a number of discussions both on the list and off and I missed
them while you were gone.
I basically think we are not worlds apart. I see a cellular automaton with
a large set [lookup table] of rules [sort of a machine if you will] that
lie below physics as we perceive it.
What I have tried to do is keep zero information in the ensemble while
finding ways in which the cellular automaton comes about, how a particular
one has an isomorphic link to a part of the underlying dynamic of the
Everything from which it is in turn emergent, and how this dynamic - the
lowest layer - insists that the automaton change state to maintain the
isomorphic link or perish, and how this underlying dynamic effects the true
noise content of the cellular automaton.
Thus in my model from the Everything dynamic emerges the "machine" - the
