First, let me apologize for being so slow to respond. I have been out of pocket for a few days (life gets to be complex sometimes). With regard to your concern that I am making assumptions, I think you have missed the central issue of exactly what I am doing.

To restate the problem I am attempting to solve: I am trying to come up with a procedure for modeling the underlying data given that that data is totally undefined and (a very significant issue) that data has been transformed by a totally undefined process! I define the underlying data and reality to be identical concepts (from the position that there exists no communicable concept of reality which cannot be transformed into numbers). I define the undefined process to be our senses: i.e., our senses and the undefined process are also identical concepts!

Think of the undefined process as some totally undefined secret code. All I ask is that the code be defineable not that it be defined. One of the components of that transformation could be "add a number to every number" and my model must be able to handle such a phenomena. If my model cannot handle that transformation, then my model is not universal!!

>>>>For example spontaneous rotational symmetry breaking would be outside the scope of your model.
