Alan,

From now on you have to provide me with shorter responses for Harv.

>>>"There is a classic philosophy scenario called 'the telephone exchange problem', or something. The error in it is that it ASSUMES 'an external reality' in order to claim isolation from it. But how can you 'prove' isolation from 'reality' without assuming a 'reality' to be isolated from in the first place?"

This SINGLE PARAGRAPH would probably have saved me a couple hours this afternoon, formulating a response for Harv.

>>>"most of the equations known as 'The Laws Of Physics' are inherent to any closed system of logically consistent inter-related definitions"

This is a neat suggestion, but I think Stafford was trying to do a lot more than this (I bet when he first put it together he actually thought he'd proven Einstein wrong!).
