Hi Dick,

>>>H: However, I have no idea what the concept of proof means in your 'mental model' since proof requires axioms. Does that mean that there are no proofs in your mental model and therefore everything is subject to doubt? D: For the moment, let us lay all these issues aside as they have no bearing at all on the critical thing which I hold you misunderstand. Let me put it this way, once we agree that the underpinning (the fundamental basic understanding or support behind any mental model you can conceive of) consists of the idea that reality may be seen as "a collection of objects in a three dimensional space", some of which change as time passes, then we are both working with the same perspective. From that point onward, we have no arguments which I would call substantive at all.
