Final Proof That DocktorDick Is A Quack!

DD defines reality as a set of numbers, then proceeds to show that "most of physics" applies to any set of numbers. To some gullible people it may sound like a great insight; in reality it's nothing more than quackery. Here's the final proof:

"All bananas in existence" can also be defined as a set of numbers. The set fully qualifies for DoctorDick's "rational analysis", and every single thing he says in his paper about "reality" can also be said about "all bananas in existence". So DoctorDick's "Foundations of Physical Reality" paper could just as well be titled "Foundation of Bananas". According to the great genius, if you study bananas you'll find "most of physics" there, from particle physics to general relativity. Which, if our science is correct, happens to be the case to some limited extent.

What DoctorDick does not, will not, cannot say is how "reality" differs from "bananas". That is, he will not tell you, no matter how hard you press him, what statements, mathematical or otherwise, are true about reality which are not true about bananas. He won't say that because he has no clue, he does not even understand the issue. To him reality and bananas are the same thing.

If you think I'm joking or making this up, please provide clear proof to the contrary. DoctorDick has been arrogantly putting everyone down on this website for too long; it's time his farce is exposed for what it is without getting into fancy philosophical arguments.

(of course this will degenerate into a debate over my real identity, which is OK with me as it proves that DoctorDick's "work" is far less interesting or meaningful than a poster with a foolish name)

Have fun y'all!
