I do not know if one should use the word Theory but what strikes me
is the convergence I see in numerous lines of thought. I see my
model as having many features in common with Russell's even though
some of the differences may not be subject to complete
reconciliation. I also see a place for Bruno's consistent histories,
consistent extensions computational hypothesis approach as a sub
component of mine. I have been made aware of others that fit the
same pattern of convergence towards what appears to me to be a single
The apparent convergence from such different starting places and
ensuing seemingly incompatible lines of thought I find
remarkable. It makes me believe that the model at the apex of this
convergence is the correct one as far as we can ever know it.
