What I am trying to do is establish what making a
list is in my model and does it have any mathematical credence.

I make it an assumption because some may believe
that "make a list" means something different.

Did you mean class not "glass"?

I am not a mathematician so I do not quite understand the above.

If I understand you, that comes later in the walk through of my model

To me at this point the Church Thesis is an
ingredient in some of the possible state
succession sequences allowed in my model.

I mean all properties I do not know if that is
the same as your "effective" properties.

This is my point above - "to list" inherently a
countably infinite [as max length] process.

I would add that my third assumption becomes more
important later as one of the keys to my model's dynamic.

The list of all possible properties of objects.

Yes we have discussed this before, and it is one
of the reasons I continue to believe that your approach is a sub set of mine.

I know it has taken a long time for me to reach a
level in my model where I could even begin to use
an axiom based description and I appreciate your patience.

I have read that it takes 10 years of focused
practice to become an expert in a given sub discipline.

At this point in my practice of engineering I am
on my way to becoming an expert in a fifth sub discipline.

I hope you can understand why I must continue to
find a path to the development and expression of
my ideas in this venue that is short of becoming
an expert in mathematical expression.

I appreciate your help and perhaps with a little
more of it I can reach what you are asking for.

Perhaps it is also a good idea to exhaust the
idea of whether or not your approach is or is not
a sub set of another approach.

Yours
