I vindicate that I am even a plotinist, or a neoplatonist if you prefer. I just don't share your naive view of platonia, so I avoid that term with you. In any case such a terminological debate is entirely useless. Tom Caylor has provided enough good answer on that point: to ask where the UD lives is a category error. Numbers, prgram and mathematical structure does not lives in any place except metaphorically. Actually physicist borrowed the notion of space to mathematician to get some sharable notion of "where and when", but of course those spaces cannot be ascribed to a place themselves, or, again only in some metaphorical sense, like saying that such space lives in the category of sets, or in a model of ZF, etc. Bruno http://iridia.ulb.ac.be/~marchal/ --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
