Hi Dick,

Before I post nonsense, I need to know if you can agree with this:

Do you think reality is a set of numbers? I'm convinced you don't, so why do you choose to define reality that way? I can think of a good reason why, and if you are thinking of the same reason then I have no issue with your definition at all; I never did, in fact. However, something is still missing.

The problem is simple, and I'm convinced you can understand it. It's not essentially different from your argument, but it includes something you overlooked. First, we have to assume a few things:

1. Reality exists
2. Some aspects of reality can be cast in the form of a theory
3. It's possible, but not known until our theorizing process is complete, that some aspects of reality cannot be theorized

Do you have any issue with those? I'm not defining anything so far, just trying to make it clear where I'm coming from. Let me know what you think.
