I think that is the major attraction of "mathematical universes" - that
the order emerges "after the fact" - out of random patterns.
The order would take over the function of causality in a materialist
Causality, as Brent (I think) has mentionend, is still not really
understood. What physicists mean is actually a certain kind of locality
- and macro-causality emerges as a statistical mean.
This is already not so far from "order from randomness" (in platonia
locality would also be an "after the fact", a "physical" feature).
Bruno takes the whole step, dumps matter, and let's mind emerge from
What I think fascinating is why we then find ourselves as "single
persons" - if one dumps matter, why is not an arbitrary ordering out of
the "number mess" conscious of being many persons at once (in the matter
picture: being aware of superpositions).
Why then the feeling of being a single person?
In Bruno's system: why are OM's tied to single persons?
