Why do you not consider an isomorphism between the Category
ofcomputer/universal-numbers and physical realities? That way we
a lot of problems!
I think that it is because of your insistence of the Platonic view
the material/physical realm is somehow lesser in ontological status
the assumption that a timeless totality = the appearance of change
its measures) is illusory. I would like to be wrong in this
The problem is that assuming the material / physical realm as
you no further than assuming that "God did it!" It's a "shut up and
(or shut up and pray) ontology.
With materialism you just have a "brute fact" - well, maybe that's it,
there /is /just a brute, unexplained fact. But us ape descended life
like to look for explanations even beneath the apparent brute facts!
But "Everything happens" is just as useless as "God did it". A theory
explain anything fails to explain at all.
It can't explain /anything/. It just says that all outcomes of the laws of
are instantiated. This requires less information than saying that a specific
outcome of the LOP is instantiated, assuming the LOP allow more than one
But I feel that you must already know this. Are you just being Devil's
do you honestly not see the usefulness of multiverse theories?
Stephen isn't talking about a multiverse as implied by physics, he's
an immaterialist theory, a "timeless Platonic totality", which I can only
consists of everything not self-contradictory or some such.
Geee, it is that hard for you to parse what I right and make sense of it? How many times
have I claimed that both materialism and immaterialism have severe problems and that I
reject them. Sheesh, learn to read.
Sorry, my mistake.
