Bruno, thanks for your 'views' expressed to Evgeniy below.
*"...**Why people believe..." *I think we agreed that no such thing in our
access as a Theory of Everything (omniscience missing) and the figments
scientists believe IN are fables.
I apologize for writing in brief *"Nature"* and not as I usually do: "the
existence, nature, the world, you name it..." and for *'humans'* in a
similar sense, abbreviated from something like: "the portion of the
infinite complexity we have actually conscious access to..." (and I am not
sure if 'we' - 'you? - have access to all details of other Loebian machines
or jumping bugs how THEY exercise mental functions akin to our thinking in
this restricted format we apply as our present life (please: don't ask!)
However I barge in 'asking': what is *"rationally"? *your word (machine)
theology is just another name. If you copy the (religious/philosophical)
theology, we are not ahead and if you presume the infinite capabilities of
the 'ultimate' Loebian than we don't (can't) understand the term.
(Your last par is a 'human'(!) impersonation of a machine.
