Hi Bruno, My thought is to look at the transformation group around which someproperty is invariant to act as a generator of the properties ofthe, say,quark.

`Good idea. That is related with the importance of group theory and`

`(soon) category theory in physics.`

For simple numbers this would be a permutation over fields, one field per number,

`Why? We may have use combinators instead of numbers. Their role are`

`intensional, and representational. Their intrinsic mathematical`

`structure certainly plays some role, but I don't see why to use them`

`directly to mirror physics. Even if that works (by chance) it would`

`hidden the mind-body problem. Of course it might be very interesting,`

`and the relation between physics and number theory suggest that such`

`approach have their merits.`

but this seems to not really resolve the question entirely.

I am not sure I have a clear idea of the question, here.

Itmakes me suspicious of the entire Platonic program, for what wouldact asthe universal generator of "twoness" as distinguished from"threeness" bein-itself? Why not some kind of nominalism that transformsasymptoticallyinto universalism?

You lost me.

`You know how I work. I start from an assumption about some link`

`between consciousness and Turing 'machine', and from this I derived`

`step by step a frame which is closer to Plato and Plotinus than to`

`Aristotle, at least on the "Matter" notion.`

BTW, I really enjoyed reading your SIENA paper. My only comment onit is that I wish you would elaborate more on the diamond^alpha taspectbecause that is where plurality obtains.

`Thanks. Actually I think, but I'm still not quite sure, that the`

`"^alpha" feature should explain the graded aspect of the quantum`

`logics, which should explains the origin of the tensor product, of the`

`plurality of dimension, and eventually the (quantum) structure of`

`space-time. The many worlds are more due to the extreme redundancy of`

`the computational histories in arithmetic.`
