Hi Mitch, No, not a thing, as in "...what is this Logic comprised of...". If it is a "thing" then it could not possibly be any subset of the universe (this particular subset of the multiverse or the total multiverse). It would have to be the entire omniverse; all that exists. But that would not answer my question: What animates the logic? Where doth the fire emanate?
Maybe the "fire", to use a word from my fav philosopher, is what is fundamental and all the "things" are its sub-invariants. (I have to invent a word here. What would you denote that which "remains the same" withing some transformation of some subset of all that exists?) "Fire rests by changing." -- Heraclitus On Sun, Dec 22, 2013 at 2:04 PM, <spudboy...@aol.com> wrote: > Your theory comes from Von Neumann, and Chaitin, and Wolfram, does it not, > Edgar?
