Hi Godfrey:

My model starts with what I describe as unavoidable definition - of the All and [simultaneously] the Nothing.

Any definition defines a pair of two objects. The target object such as a flower [the "is" part of the pair] and an object that has the remainder of the list of all properties etc. of all possible objects [the "is not" part of the pair]. Generally the "is not" part of the pair is of little use. The All and the Nothing are an interesting "is", "is not" definitional pair. The All is the entire list and the Nothing is the absence of the entire list.

The Nothing is inherently incomplete and this results in the dynamic.

This is a brief semi intro and I have posted on this model before as it has developed.

Now the All part contains all possible states of all possible universes. This should include the one I believe represents ours. Therefore my All seems to contain universes that support YD and thus comp if Bruno is correct.

To answer your questions as best I currently can:

My model appears to contain YD, CT, and AR so if Bruno's follow on reasoning is correct and if in fact my model contains YD, CT, and AR then it contains comp but it is not the same as comp - it would embed comp.

Is my model falsifiable? I will have to think about that - after all I just recently got to where it supports a flow of consciousness. Since the model does not say exactly what is on the list that is the All and the 'instantation of reality" dynamic is random then what indeed is the scope of "all possible states of all possible universes" and the resulting actually implemented evolving universes?

In any event it would be interesting to see if YD can be shown to be false. I think that might start to constrain the All and that would be interesting - [why that constraint and what others are there?].

Hi Hal,

From what you say below I am not able to determine whether your model is identical or distinct from Bruno's in the only point that I am interested in so let me ask you:

Is your model falsified if YD is false or can you still "dance" if that is the case?

I am asking because unfalsifiable models turn out to be a lot less interesting than
falsifiable ones as I am sure you understand....
