No problem. Happy that you take fun in the translation.

I met Ladyman in Dubrovnic. Very nice guy. But from the Amazon "Look
inside" I have not found reference on Everett, or Church or anything
indicating he circled around the mechanist idea. Judge by yourself by
reading the introduction on the Amazon Look Inside, if you are
interested go for it, but be careful not running on too many horses.
