O.K, perhaps I should clarify that and state that I think 'binary numbers' (0's and 1's) are the ultimate 'stuff' of reality. Pure binary maths by itself is not quite 'computation' is it? I think 'computation' requires that some minimal *meaning* be assigned to the 0's and 1's. So I could agree that the universe is not a computer. It's just pure binary math. So what do you think of the idea that the ultimate fabric of reality is pure binary math?

`Perhaps. Any math in which you can represents the computable functions`

`will do (assuming comp).`

`But that will only be the initial decor. The point now is to explain`

`the aroma of coffee from it, and not only that, but to get the biggest`

`part of the (first person) plenitude. And also the (probably first`

`person plural) charge of the electron (just to convince the`

`physicist!).`
