"There is a very subtle issue raised by what I have done which I have been thinking about for many years". C'mon; why not tell us? Be a nice Christmas present for us philosophical star trekkers, who like to boldly go where none have gone before!

Your chapter 5 is spectacular; do you realise the connection it may have with the mysterious "M-brane" described in Stephen Hawking's recent book: "The Universe In A Nutshell"?

I think I found an independent demo. of your result!

Another thing: Professor Stephen Toulmin says that probability is a myth; it's just reducible to trust-statements on how much you are willing to bank on something. (Or in closed systems, it's tautological restatements of mathematical premises).

Is your issue this: However you describe a tree; if you're honest about it, the tree is whatever you want it to be. It can be a collection of colours; a pattern of leaves; a sense of aliveness; a vast structure of atoms; a bizarre world of quarks, gluons, and such-like; a hologram of the whole cosmos. As you measure, so you are measured? Is that it?
