You are being sloppy again!

***** Harv:
According to Dick's model the amount of information available to our senses cannot be infinite and still be examinable, therefore maybe we reached the end of the information! *****

First, you are confusing the idea of "Logic" and the idea of a "model". The "logic" statement I made was that, if the information to be examined prior to proposing a model was infinite, then, as the examination of the information cannot be completed (from the definition of "infinite"), and no model can be proposed. That is, no model can be based on an infinite amount of information. I never said the information available was finite! I just said: if it is, you can't examine all of it!
