Though I am not Aurino and am not hosing Alan....

Yes, but is no insurance against delusive conclusions about how math applies. Only a dedication to integrity can guard one against fudging one's math to support one's most cherished pre-conceptions.

In a way you are right; they have no content, because they show FREEDOM; my posts might help release you from the math-laws of physics, release you from mathematical death...
Alan seems to say he is devising tools,
for which there is no such limitation. With tools, the tests are not mathematical but empirical and ethical.

"an expert mathematician has looked at Dr. Stafford's work and has agreed that my non-mathematical "category intersections" approach informed by John Hospers explanation of how words are defined by a broadening and narrowing process IS A VALID WAY OF MAPPING DR. DICK'S SYSTEM.
That does not surprise me.

"As" and "so" do not correspond to any precise functions that I know. Can you help me understand how that statement is not just a weasel-phrase ?

The danger is that imprecise laws and equations can to be a tool of tyrants, petty and otherwise,
for fun and profit but at the expense of the one being judged.

In doubt and good faith,
Mike
