Actually I deduce the absence of matter from comp. If we bet on
comp, we have no other choice than to explain matter from dream
coherence notions. We can add matter, but it would be like
invisible horses, and vision is a first person experience and it
relies on the infinities of computation in arithmetic.
No, matter would not be "like invisible horses". It quantifies
the "resources" required for a computation to run. You safely
neglect this in your explanations because you set COMP in the
platonic realm of ideas, where time, space and limitations do not
exist. I am trying to get your result to work in conditions that
cannot ignore resource requirements.
I was talking on primitive matter. Arithmetic is full of local
relative resources. No problem.
