I have not posted for awhile but here is the latest revision to my model:

DEFINITIONS: V k 04/03/10

1) Distinction: That which describes a cut [boundary], such as the cut
between red and other colors.

2) Devisor: That which encompasses a quantity of distinctions.

Some divisors are collections of divisors.  [A devisor may be "information"
but I will not use that term here.]  Since a distinction is a description, a
devisor is a quantity of descriptions.  [A description can be encoded in a
number so a devisor may be simply a number encoding some multiplicity of
distinctions.  There is no restriction on the variety or encoding schemes so
the number can include them all.  I wish to not include other properties of
numbers herein and mention them only in passing to establish a possible

3) Incomplete: The inability of a divisor to answer a question that is
meaningful to that divisor.  [This has a mirror image in inconsistency
wherein all possible answers to a meaningful question are in the devisor
[yes and no, true and false, etc.]

MODEL:

1) Assumption #1: There exists a complete ensemble [possibly a "set" but I
wish to not use that term here] of all possible divisors - call it the
"All", [The "All" may be the "Everything" but I wish not to use that term
here].

2) The All therefore encompasses every distinction.  The All is thus itself
a divisor and therefore contains itself an unbounded number of times.

3) Define N(j) as divisors that encompass a zero quantity of distinction.
Call them Nothings.  By definition each copy of the All contains at least
one N(j).

4) Define S(k) as divisors that encompass a non zero quantity of distinction
but not all distinction.  Call them Somethings.

5) An issue that arises is whether or not a particular divisor is static or
dynamic in any way [the relevant possibilities are discussed below].
Devisors cannot be both.  This requires that all divisors individually
encompass the self referential distinction of being static or dynamic.

6) From #3 one divisor type - the Nothings - encompass zero distinction but
must encompass this static/dynamic distinction thus they are incomplete.

7) The N(j) are thus unstable with respect to their zero distinction
condition [dynamic one].  They each must at some point spontaneously "seek"
to encompass this static/dynamic distinction.  That is they spontaneously
become Somethings.

8) Somethings can also be incomplete and/or inconsistent.

9) The result is a "flow" of a "condition" from an incomplete and/or
inconsistent Something to a successor Something that encompasses a new
quantity of distinction.

10) The "condition" is whether or not a particular Something is the current
terminus of a path or not.

11) Since a Something can have a multiplicity of successors the "flow" is a
multiplicity of paths of successions of Somethings until a complete
something is arrived at which stops the individual path [i.e. a path stasis
[dynamic three.]]

12) Some members of the All describe individual states of universes.

13) Our universe's path would be a succession of such members of an All.  A
particular succession of Somethings can vary from fully random to strictly
driven by the incompleteness and/or inconsistency of the current terminus
Something.  I suspect our universe's path has until now been close to the
latter.
