Harv,

Your comments themselves are inconsistent!

*****Cut from your note:

***How did this collection of people get to be a "set of numbers"? You seem to "know" something about reality which is beyond me. Please explain how you intend to define "people".***

If reality is a set of numbers, then we can say that the collection of people are a set of numbers (one number per person having the collection of numbers in their heads).

***Or is it that you think that it is impossible that any explanation of reality could ever be conceived which did not include the concept "people". If that is true, please show me your proof***

Just the opposite. My definition of reality is not related to people. It is simply 'all that is'.

*****


You can't have it both ways Harv! If the concept of reality under discussion is not related to "people", you can't use arguments about "people" to show that the concept is inconsistent!

I know you know better than that!! Come on, stop wasting my time!

Dick
