Hi Harv,

You can also call it what you want, but the only disagreement Dick and I have is in the classification of his fundamental equation as a theorem. And, I am not content to stop there and "cut out all the fluff" as you call it. I am awestruck by the implications of his theorem on philosophy and the philosophy of science. I'm not competent to debate those philosophical issues and so I don't very often comment on them. And, as Bruce has hinted, but has not been specific about, I may be incompetent in mathematics also. But at least I feel I know more about mathematics than philosophy, and since I have spent my study time of Dick's work on the mathematical aspects, I am inclined to comment more on the math than the philosophy.

I think Dick would be willing and eager for anyone competent to tear his paper apart in any way they want. But attacking it with generalities and invectives is, in my opinion, a waste of everyone's time.

Warm regards,

Paul
