I think the question is whether comp determines that the world is (locally) Lorentz invariant. If it is, then c is just a unit conversion factor between the + and - signature terms. It's value is arbitrary, like "how many feet in a mile", which is why it is now an exact number in SI units. Oh yes, I seem to remember that physicists like to set c (and h?) to 1.

So does comp predict that any TOE will have a unique solution - namely the one we experience? So is this an alternative to the WAP - we experience a universe compatible with our existence because such a universe has to drop out of the interations of conscious beings in Platonia?

It is not the same. WAP use a form of ASSA, where comp uses only RSSA. (Absolute versus Relative self sampling assumptions).

Ah, I don't quite understand that but I feel like a dim light migvht have appeared.

We might revise step seven, as this should be understood from it. Any TOE (that is any first order logical specification of any universal system taken in the ontology) must give rise to the same physics, at least for each pints of view. It gives the same theology, more generally, and physics is defined through it.

Remind me, which is step 7?

In steps 0-6, you grasped that from a first person perspective we are unaware of the reconstitution delays, that they does not change the probability calculus (if it exists) and that this remains true for the change between "physical implementation" and "physical virtual implementation".

In step 7, you are supposed to be in a physical universe containing a never stopping execution of a UD. So it is like in step six, except that the indeterminacy domain is infinite. You can realize then that to predict (in a conceptual and in an exact way) any first person experience you can have, like when doing a pizza, you need to apply the "probability calculus" on all your "reconstitutions" in the UD* (the complete running of the UD). So physics is reduced to that probability calculus on all your computations. OK?





We can come back on this.

Yes please. This is very interesting!

Thanks. tell me if you (re)saw the step 7 point.

Bruno
