Richard, a very good paper you have there. The Mindspace recording mechanism you invoked sounds exactly like the Hindu akashic records feature to their religion. For people like myself, you'd need to expand on the particular physics of the recording, such as what is analogous to the read-write head, and what is analogous to disk memory? Yes, indeed, as the Japanese expression goes: "To a hammer, everything in the world looks like a nail." But it would be helpful to see the How of the Recording might physically occur? Are Leibniz's monads emerging from a virtual space, a phase space, a Platonian great beyond? Are these monads conscious, semi-consciousness waiting a brain to actualize them? It sounds also like not only Tegmark, but Beckenstein, with the Beckenstein Bound (1 x 10^120). How could or does intelligence make use of this aspect of the universe, if it at all can? Its a bit like Stephen Wolfram thinking, he can re-create the knowledge of unknown extra-terrrestial life, if we, but merely, compute it properly, and extract the useful data. Wolfram has not spoken at all on this, since he made his conjecture over ten years ago. Perhpas it was a bit of flipancy on his part? Very good paper(s) at your site, indeed. Thanks. -Mitch
