I can only occassionally participate now due to the cost; but great to see Yanniru and Dr. Dick clarifying detail of Dr. Dick's work.

At Counterbalance, Luis Hamburgh took up my challenge to put my ideas to the sword. It was in digging deep to reply to Luis, that I made a spectaculsr discovery. The discovery was about the way both the brain and apparently science works; a self-referential growing mapping system incorporating feedback, multiple-levels, and pattern recognition and construction. Para 115 of "Reply To Luis Hamburgh" was central (Counterbalance forum).

That discovery maps deeply into Dr. Dick's discovery, it appears.

In my reply to Luis, I showed why "scientific empiricism" or multi-person objectivity might be a myth. That is, that all supposed 'external' history is like a subset of internal history of each scientist in the group. I showed how the laws of science might incorporate a reflection of the assumptions in the organisation of scientific activity itself. By reducing "objectivity" of the group-type (empiricism is based on multi-party verification of alleged objective observation) to subjectivity; I may have re-inforced Dr. Dick's solipsist concept of physics.

See Ya
