Hi Luis,

*****I think if fluid math were the basis of your work your conclusion would be that continuity is reality, and that no discrete segments of this continuity exist outside our imaginations.*****


I suspect you have not read Dick's paper. If you had, and if you understood what he did, you would realize that continuous math (I think that is what you mean by "fluid math") is the basis of his work. It is fairly late in his chain of inferences that he introduces the Dirac Delta Function, and thereby jettisons the need for, or dependence on, continuity.

I think you underestimate the amount of respect due Dick by you.

Warm regards,

Paul
