But, if there is more than one time dimension, than an infinity of computations converges to exactly one computation at a time. So both can be computable, just not exactly at the same time. They must take turns alternating, i.e. "dovetailing" each other. F.H. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
