Not at all. What we have now is a force-of-the-gap, field-of-the-gap, etc. 
I am merging all of the empty bubbles and finding that none could be 
anything more or less than sense.

True, but that may be what is required. If you want to understand what it 
all is, and don't have the math to fall back on, then you have to think 
more deeply about the question. We need a limited view of mathematics. 
Computers are much better at it.

No, I think that you miss that they cannot be handled by any definition, 
because all definitions are already first person qualities. They are 
perspectives on perspectives - sense making of sense making.

Right. Why would third person need an account of anything when first person 
is already the only accountant?

I think that's an illusion. Math's version of 1p is an empty light socket 
with a bulb drawn around it. All references to 1p come from our minds - our 
generosity in sharing our awareness in whatever we look at that seems to 
have a face, or does something that seems to require knowing. In the proper 
light, all of these empty promises and paste jewels will be exposed as the 
pathetic fallacy...a trompe 'loeil that is as spectacular as any could ever 
be.
