*I wanted to put geometry in the chain because materialists seems to base
their firm belief in the fact that space is both in mathematics, in the
reality and in the mind, so space it is the firm thing where "real" things
are located. I try to show that space is just our mental representation of
a mathematical reality in R3 where information with survival value is
presented and "colored" . This information is the matter. and therefore
space and matter is only on the mind.**
*Both chains can be alternative descriptions of the same cosmology
(basically). since Arithmetic + computation unfold the set of all
structures, including the ones with good properties of simplicity etc. for
biology. But there is an introduction of consciousness in your chain
that is lacking in the one I propose. *
*I'm conscious that mine is incomplete since the mind (or consciousness in
your case) appears as a derivative and this is not so, since existence
properly seen, is not possible without consciousness and therefore it must
be more at the beginning of the chain by definition. *
*A better chain would be, with (<->) in the two first steps since the mind
or in your case consciousness is the selector of existence. n your case, I
think that consciousness would "cause-back" Arithmetic and computation:*
