"The degeneracy of your figure does indeed
simplify the figure, but you must be aware that you have lost information as a result."


"I think the ideas you presented represent just how poorly you understand science and mathematics."

Unfortunately, Paul, you do not have your own
universe in which you are God. You seem to have
a real capacity for warmth and insight.

In the preceding quotes where you are raking
Luis over the coals, there is a little omission
-- "quantification." Yes, information is lost -- in information theory, the question is, "How much information is lost?"

It is an Law of Science that one cannot fail to meet a standard in a cse where that standard is not established, whether empirically or by calculation.
In this case, the standard, which was not quoted was, "Paul's standard for how much information may be lost before communication fails."

The whole thing is mush to me...

Warm retards,
