This is fine if you are writing fiction, but in science you have to be prepared for some parts of your theory to overlap others. The definitions and categories you use, the logic and any maths that is applicable, are all derived from existing theories. What you call shoehorning is an attempt to find out what your theory actually is. Over and over, someone makes a comparison and is told that is what your theory is NOT. This is starting to look like "Games People Play" - I'm thinking of the one where someone says they want to do X, their friend says, "Why don't you (do something that will help you achieve X) " to which the other person always says "Yes, but..." and comes up with some objection. So they never achieve X. In this case, we say "Why don't you give a formal definition that anyone can understand?" and you say "Don't shoehorn me - I've explained that - see my post of... it's obvious... anyone who disagrees with me is a moron..." Anything but actually achieving X, in this case a theory with a formal definition that can be critiqued. It's almost as though you only came here in the hope that everyone would say "Yes, wow, wonderful theory! Shut down CERN, this guy's got it all worked out..." A formal definition is needed, with defined terms, assumptions, deductions, proofs. You haven't even given a proper definition of P-time that actually makes sense yet. I await your hand waving tack spitting insistence that you have, or stony silence 'cos I'm only a stupid gurl as the case may be. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
