Hi Stephen P. King It all depends on what you mean by existence.
If by existence you mean dasein (actually being there), then mathematical points or theoetical domains do not exist.

Seems that divine intervention may be an assumption. I wonder who does the choosing. May I suggest Godellian consciousness? Dear Richard, ? No need for divine intervention! I am not sure what "Godellian consciousness" is. Let me comment a bit more on this part of Pratt's idea. The choice mechanism that I have worked out uses a tournament styled system. It basically asks the question: what is the most consistent Boolean solution for the set of observers involved? It seems to follow the general outlines of pricing theory and auction theory in? economics and has hints of Nash equilibria. This makes sense since it would be modeled by game theory. My conjecture is that quantum entanglement allows for the connections (defined as bisimulations)? between monads to exploit EPR effects to maximize the efficiency of the computations such that classical signaling is not needed (which gets around the "no windows" rule). This latter idea is still very much unbaked. -- Onward!
