Hi Dick,

Sorry for the abrupt ending on the previous post. I must have maxed out some buffer. Here is the rest of it.

242. I agree, and I think this is a profound result. I think it deserves to go down as one of the most important intellectual discoveries of the 20th century, if not of the third millennium.

243. >>>Thus it is that the truth of physics (which is in fact nothing more than an internally consistent way of viewing any possible information), is taken erroneously as prima-facie evidence of valid mapping of mental models.>We do have one plus working for us: anytime we restrict ourselves to definitions and relations which are 100% internally consistent with one another, a valid mapping is possible.>Notice how I can logically deduce and discuss the characteristics of things I cannot even begin to imagine! Now that is the power of abstract logic.
