Dick,

I'm still puzzled as to why you keep saying your paper is about communication when I always thought it was about physics. But something just occurred to me.

Is it possible that what you really think is that we all have different models of the universe inside our heads, and that physics is just the portion of those models that can be successfully communicated? Being isomorphic, it can represent different things but still be fully communicable. That would also make sense with the fact that physics is the least-common-denominator in human knowledge.

If that is the case, then it adds a new perspective on your ideas for me. Let me know!
