Hi John and George:
In my post:
"I see no motivator to any dynamics within the Everything other than
the incompleteness of some of its members and the unavoidable
necessity to progressively resolve this incompleteness."
I used "motivator" in the sense that a gas engine is a motivator of dynamics.
I use incompleteness in the sense of a lack of information.
The initial "meaningful" question concerns the duration of a
This question is inevitable and must be answered ["unavoidable
necessity"], but the Nothing can answer no questions so is incomplete
so it becomes a Something to gain information.
A Something is a sub set of the members of the Everything and is
defined by its current boundary with the Everything.
The same question will apply to Somethings: What is the duration of
the current boundary? If a Something can not answer this question it
must change its boundary [expand it into the Everything]. This is a
new Something and the expansion may not have encompassed a sufficient
general answer to this question and so the process repeats
["progressively resolve this incompleteness"].
I currently see no other dynamic motivator/process within the
Everything or in/of any of its sub sets.
