Dear Hal,

What do you propose as a means to explain the memory and processing required to be sure of inconsistency as opposed to consistency?

It is not a logical inconsistency. What I am trying to convey is that each step in the sequence pays no attention to the prior sequence. That is a maximal inconsistency of progression to the sequence. "Random" and "independent" to me convey a testable behavior and I want to point to an untestable progression.

The embedding system component - the All - is already infinite, so an infinite test is containable therein.

Such a path will link arbitrarily long strings of kernels that give the appearance of 1st person continuity, and this appearance can hold even if many other kinds of kernels intervene - the 1st person could not detect this.
