    Posted By: E-ManOk a) This doesn't have a reference, b) I'm no physicist but if one told me "Well to do this you need different physical worlds". I'll assume were talking more about "worlds" in the quantum-mechanics "many worlds" sense than in needing a device on Jupiter and Mars.


    Oh hell, that is so narrow-minded. All you need are some really good psychoactive pharmaceuticals.

    That's how I think this paper got written too.

    Another "trippy" claim was to engineer Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem. WTF?

    Not as trippy as Gilliam's Zero Theorem.

    At some point Gilliam must bomb, because he takes such risks. Will this be it?

    I think everything he has done has been a glorious disaster.

    Surely you don't rank Brazil as such?

    I loved it all. But yes - an over-the-top disaster. I just like Gilliam's style of disaster.

    wow, feedback loops are wonderful things. Often so hard to predict that you just have to run them and see what happens...

    Oh, I dunno. Systems and control theory is growing hair

    Well even simple loops quickly give fractals and chaos. One may be able to predict 'attractors', but the details are hard.

    There's a God particle. So is there a God transfer function?

    Posted By: E-ManAt this point, I call shananagans. The hard parts are glossed over (how do we build these clocks), the details seem to have no rational requirement (why do we need spheres). This is nonsense IMHO.
    That last seems to be word salad.

    I think a transfer function is appropriate to an intermediary. The Church presumably has a transfer function. It seems to be nonlinear and acausal and generally weird - put lots in and not much comes out.
