Russell seems to restrict 'observerhood' to timed worlds (maybe: humans?)
("there's nobody in them to observe them"). I leave 'observation' open to
ANY absorption of information, in 'our' sense or otherwise. I don't 'deny'
existence to formats we have no idea about. We just don't know.
Hal (above) mentions dynamic, in our usual sense, a sequence in time, as a
property of the world (the one (kind?) we live in). Reference to "ORDERED"
sequence, ordered as we have it (in time).
I mentioned several times (!) tha one problem I struggle with is how to
'change' in an atemporal system? where the 'from' and 'to' are not fixed?
seems to be beyond our imagination - however I don't deny its existence (see
Our 'model' of the 'world' disallows these variations, but - that's where
reductionistic models fail to represent the wholeness (totality). Sciences
reductionistic, so I accept the reply that my idea is not "scientific" (in
definitions of the sciences).
