" If our conceptual schemes contain a paradox, that means that whatever conclusions about the world that we construct from such a paradoxial scheme is bound to have discrepancies. "

OK, but...

" This is my point with Dick. He uses an older conceptual scheme of mathematical statements, and as a result his conclusions contain a paradox. "

You should be careful with that statement, as it seems to imply that newer conceptual schemes are free from paradoxes, which is probably far from being the case.

" The paradox is that post-1960's physics is no where to be seen in his conclusions! "

Come on Harv, you're smarter than that. If he got 1960 years of physics, you can be sure that nothing stands in his way of getting 40 more. That is not the problem with his position.

To be fair, I think the only problem with Dick's position is that it has no problems. His paper is completely meaningless and adds nothing to our knowledge of reality. Since it doesn't tell anything about reality, no fact can invalidate it. Arguing with him is a waste of time as he's absolutely right and he knows it. The best argument you can offer him is silence. If he's not saying anything of any significance, why should anyone bother?
