  Dear John,


  This is ancient history judging from the post date. Just the same - I saw a 
post from you some time ago with the single word in the subject line 
"unsubscribe". I'm not dreaming - I saw it. Did you lean on the big, bright 
yellow unsubscribe button by mistake?

      John,

      You are right, I was wrong. Those deeds are not contingent. They 
      probably appears automatically when one give a name to God.

      Perhaps, "God" could be "defined" by this: it is the one which is such 
      that once you give it a name or a definition trouble appears.

      Obviously such a sentence should not be taken to much literally (if we 
      do we are led to an obvious inconsistency).

      So, from now on, each time I use the word "God" it will means the 
      impersonal big unnameable 0-person point of view, that is Plotinus' 
      ONE, and/or some of its possible arithmetical (set theoretical) 
      interpretation(s), that is arithmetical truth (resp. set theoretical 
      truth).

      I will recall the theory in my reply to Tom Caylor.

      Bruno
