That would be silly. Nothing that I have ever proposed contradicts a single
scientific observation, by definition. I am not adding anything, I am
absorbing all disembodied pseudo-substances into sense: "Laws", "Forces",
"Fields", "Wavefunctions", "Probability"...all of that invisible voodoo is
gone. It's all primordial pansensitivity experiencing its own alienation

Just because they are unlimited doesn't make them capable of
self-transformation. Arithmetic truths may be mind-bogglingly complex, but
they are quite generic and aesthetically predictable. True beauty, whether
in the form of a supermodel or an art masterpiece, introduces an experience
which is literally unimaginable before it appears. It is not
self-transformation, but revelation of simple, iconic presentations which
relate to nothing but their own brand of pleasure, and to the history of
all beauty and pleasure. It has not exterior truth which it mediates for,
as we have proved with commercials. Any celebrity can be signify a product
that has nothing to do with their lives. Beauty can be a code or tag for
whatever we attach to it - it has no fixed mathematical affiliation.
