Thanks, Aurino, for that reply.

If our systems of equations in physics are _not made necessary by a specific "shape of things" that is one case.
If there _is an individual character to our universe that makes some internally consistent
physics systems workable and others not, that is a second case.
I am predisposed to believe in the second, though
belief might not be necessary or pertinent to the actual state of affairs. I might change my beliefs, but I would be interested in actually finding out which one is truer.

Now, my question is whether Dr. Stafford's paper
supports the first or second case, or both.
