What Is The Source Of The Data Sets?

Your universe seems to be an artificial construct-- a mathematical model. Does it matter whether or not the data set comes from the real world? Suppose our data, for the sake of argument, comes in the form of equations. If we seek to find a solution for this data set, there is the possibility of a conflict in the data and therefore no solution would be possible. So I assume that you are refering to an internally consistent data set.

One may ask what the source of this data set is. There would have to be some kind of generator to correspond to any conceivabe universe. The question would then be whether or not we could capture or recognize any conceivable universe. You seem to have proved that this is possible. I think that I must do a second reading in order to answer this.

I will also review Platonism for some background material.
