Which one? (If you are interested in an explanation).

All proof based on a theory are thought experiments, of course not all
thought experiments are proof. The only way to decide what is the case

No problem. Is it the comp hypothesis which makes problem for you?? It
is my working hypothesis. All what I claim is that IF comp is correct
THEN matter is not primitive, and its appearances can be justified from
numbers and number theoretical relations (UDA), and then (but only
then) I show that logic can help to find an effective way to derive
laws of matter from laws of number.
I have no idea if comp is true or false, indeed all what I have done
has been to show that comp can be made precise enough so that it
becomes refutable (although it remains unprovable in case it is true).

John, what is your opinion about comp? Would you accept a digital brain
transplant? What about the weaker question: Would you accept your
daughter or your son get married with some one having already said
"yes" for a digital brain substitution?
