So far, every attempt to make your theory consistent with the millions of observations that support SR fail, except by saying that "P-time" doesn't have any measurable effects whatsoever.
Which is also true of the invisible pink unicorns that actually control reality. > Reality subsumes physics, if you want to define physics as just what is > mathematically describable. > Or does reality emerge from physics?

So all computer programmes can be reduced to a series of NAND gates connected with wires (in principle). The structure of the programme would therefore be how the NAND gates are connected, and the operations would all be NANDs. I'm not sure if the wiring can be represented mathematically - well, actually, yes I am sure, it's just a directed graph. And I assume NAND is mathematically definable - it follows this truth table iirc 1 0 ------|----------------- 1 | 0 1 0 | 1 1 So it looks to be as though a "silicon software progam" may actually be a mathematical structure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NAND_logic -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
