at least you read through my blurb. Of course I am vague - besides I wrote
the post in a jiffy - not premeditatedly, I am sorry. Also there is no
adequate language to those things I want to refer to, not even 'in situ',
the ideas and terms about interefficient totality (IMO more than just the
TOE) are still sought of. We have only the old language of the (models -
based) quotidien and scientific terms like your "in the physicists' sense"
BTW: ""no action at a distance"? what would you call a Mars-to-Earth term
when NASA is sending an order and the module on Mars starts digging? I
think you may consider the "beam" a 'connecting' (physical) space-term?
I hope to be in the ballpark of your model-based (physicalistic) causality's
*extension* in a sense: (I never considered my position in an 'epistemic
sense') but think of your (physical) distance as 'unrelated', relevant to
more than just measurable space, in any 'dimension' we may (or still cannot)
think. I consider
sometimes 'causality' as some *backwards-"deterministic"* in the sense that
everything is 'e/affected' by other changes (relations) - as in: nothing
generates itself. (In this respect I shove the "ORIGIN" under the rag,
because I acknowledge that it is beyond our limited mental capabilities -
and I don't want to start with unreasonable assumptions.
(Yes, in my 'narrative' about a Big Bang fantasy - closer to *human common
sense logic* starts with a Plenitude-assumption, a pretty undetailed image,
giving rise only to some physically-mathematically followable(?) process of
the *mandatory* occurrence of the unlimited (both in quality and number) *
universes*, but I am ready to change it to a better idea any time.)
I wonder if I added to the obscurity of my language. If yes, I am sorry.
