I am interested in finding out how Tegmark's argument for mathematicalism is invalid, especially since I'm using it to motivate my research.*

Thanks for the references. *I'll have to think more on Jannes' paper. As I basically resting the motivation of my research on the correctness of "ERH implies MUH," I'm trying to formulate a good refutation to his paper.* --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
