You don't think the electron is primitive, so show me how to derive
its mass, spin, and electrical charge from something simpler.
We must first derive its existence/appearance. But the beginning is
given by AUDA. You have to be sure to grasp the first person
indeterminacy, because it is the building brick of the derivation of
physics, which I recall, is given by a statistics on computations as
seen by internal points of view, captured informally by the logics of
self-reference and its modal variants imposed by incompleteness.
Most plausibly electrons and particles arise from universal group
symmetries, and formally braiding operators should appears in the
semantics of some of those hypostases.
It is also possible that some properties of the electron are
"geographical", so that comp would make existing consistent physical
realities with electron having different properties, which would no
more be physical, but contingent. Open problem.
But you can already understand, if you do the work, why we have to do
this when assuming comp, which is the technical point.
