Yes. It is also the "pdf" on my home page, at the right of A Purely Arithmetical, yet Empirically Falsifiable, Interpretation of Plotinus’ Theory of Matter Or this: http://iridia.ulb.ac.be/~marchal/publications/CiE2007/SIENA.pdf It has been published since, I should decide to update my web page. You may have some idea of the idea, but this is really AUDA and the math part presupposes some mathematical logic. It was a congress in logic and computer science.
