Please, Dr. Dick:

You offered me a deal. I kept to it. Please tell me straight: are you abandoning the deal, and why? You are free to quit, but if you quit, I wonder why you quit? I'm curious.

I also feel your debate here with Harv is painfully slow.

So far your system continues to fit suberbly to
the basic system inherent in "defining" via intersecting categories.

"Number" can be shown to be category. A subset of a set of numbers is a sample of a set of categories ,to borrow the word "sample" from Yanniru. Such a small gathering of categories, where order doesn't count; amounts to a default intersection of them.

And please address the serioous issue I raised re: your technique of "adding unknown data".

Also please note the very heavy to me, financial cost of my attempts to get you to have a proper sustained conversation about your work.
