If a theory can only explain how 6% of the matter/energy in the universe
works then it can't be fundamental.

Metaphysics is not a science, and theology is crap.

To hell with the damn idiot ancient Greeks!!

Aristotle like all the ancient Greeks was confused about a great many
things, like where the sun went at night, and yet bizarrely you believe
they can give us insight into solving modern problems in science. It's
utterly ridiculous!

And you wouldn't be observing anything without something physical like

If you can see pure number show me one, I've always wanted to know where
the number eleven is located.

If atoms that obey physical laws are organized in certain ways they are
Turing Complete and thus capable of calculating anything that can be
calculated, but you need something to organize and that's why atoms are
needed. And Bruno, that is not an assumption that is an observation, nobody
has ever seed a calculation done by anything except by matter.

If you know how to get ​

Valley and become richer than ​Mark Zuckerberg.

I still don't know what "indexical computationalism" is except that its yet
another of your made up buzz words, when I Google it all I get is some of
your very recent posts to this very list; but I must say being compared to
Hal Finney I consider to be a very high complement.

So you think the problem is my big ego, hmm, well there are 2 possibilities:

1) I know you made a enormous breakthrough but I refuse to publicly say so
because I don't want to admit
 is smarter than me.

​2) I don't understand how anybody with half a brain could think saying
 "THE first person" would uniquely specify one and only one thing if "THE
first person" duplicating machines are available.

I'll let others decide which of the two is true..     ​

Aristotle didn't know his ass from a hole in the ground and neither did
Plato. Why do you keep talking about these ignoramuses?!
