That question presupposes that there is a large universe that
this one is embedded into and that it is possible to define both
coordinate maps from different points of view that can map the two
and distinguish them from each other. Where did the assumption of
communicability come from here? AFAIK< a universe is a closed
system in the sense that any extension that we could add to it
would be "part of" that universe, so the idea that there is a
location of a universe does not make much sense to me.
I was taking about the localizability of physical systems
within a universe. I was presupposing the possibility of many
locations that where capable of being considered as "it could be
there, let me look and see if it is indeed there"...
Okay. When I first saw you use the term "physical system" I thought
you were referring to an entire universe rather than parts of one.
OK, that would make your point consistent, but what if we wish to
talk about and make predictions of the behavior of "parts of one"?
