> How do you derive fermions and bosons from comp?I don't know how to derive fermions and bosons from nothing but arithmetic but you cando the next best thing. If the Schrodinger wave function for a particle is a oddfunction, that is F(x) = -F(-x), then it's a fermion and the probability of 2 fermionsoccupying the same quantum state is zero, in other words it obeys the Pauli ExclusionPrinciple and is the reason that the ground beneath your feet, which is made offermions, is solid and you don't sink to the center of the Earth.If the Schrodinger wave function for a particle is a even function, that is F(x) =F(-x), then it's a boson and it can ignore the Pauli Exclusion Principle and is thereason light rays, made of bosons, don't scramble each other when they collide at rightangles, light particles can occupy the same quantum state and thus can pass through eachother and be completely unaffected; it's the reason the light rays that enter our eyeare not a hopeless chaotic jumble of information randomized by a astronomical largenumber of collisions with other photons.

`Yep, I knew that. I thought for a moment that Bruno claimed to derive something like that`

`from comp, but it turns out that all he claims is that if comp is the theory-of-eveything`

`then it must predict everything.`
