Hi Stephen P. King
Leibniz simply assumed that the PEH existed.
My followup was that at least for large groups
of particles, not of small groups or 1,
thermodynamincs is the PEH.
I am OK with the idea that thermodynamics is the PEH, sure!
In a way this makes sense, since God seems to
act only on groups (such as killing all besides
noah and his family in the Flood). And He lets
the rain fall on the unjust as well as the just.
Jesus acts on individuals, who must be judged
I see this as a shift from total global measures to local relative
measures, where the latter looks at "individuals" defined in terms of
equivalence classes, or Brunoesque 'substitution levels".
Quantum computing or logic possibly (???)
could achieve the individual motions.
Yes. I would go further and claim that computing *is* the action
(of motion of any kind). "Quantum" and "classical" are types of logic of
the computations, in the former no copying is allowed and in the latter
copying is demanded.
