Dick,

***Yes, that is very analogous to what I have done and it surprised me that Harv would not accept such an abstract representation as rational in that he implied he was familiar with Godel's work. The whole issue in both cases is to assure the absolute generality of the representation.***

Gödel numbering has no metaphysical claims attached. There's no mention about his numbers being reality, etc. Rather, it is a straightforward approach of numeric representation and symbolism. If you want to drop all the metaphysical definitions then I believe you could achieve an interesting mathematical result.

Warm regards, Harv
