### Re: Questions on Russell's Why Occam paper

I'm not sure I follow your reasoning, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Turing subset of my world has additional constraints - namely the worlds seen by observers whose O(x)'s are prefix machines, not just maps. On Fri, Jun 10, 2005 at 05:56:50PM +0200, Bruno Marchal wrote: Le 10-juin-05, ?

This is *exactly* the way it is! Each moment is ephemeral; once the next moment comes along, the previous one could not be any more thoroughly dead and gone from the universe if it had sat on top of a detonating nuclear bomb. Of course, the difference if you sit on a nuclear bomb is that, QTI
