Yes.
It is also the "pdf" on my home page, at the right of
A Purely Arithmetical, yet Empirically Falsifiable, Interpretation of
Plotinus’ Theory of Matter

Or this:

http://iridia.ulb.ac.be/~marchal/publications/CiE2007/SIENA.pdf

It has been published since, I should decide to update my web page.

You may have some idea of the idea, but this is really AUDA and the
math part presupposes some mathematical logic. It was a congress in
logic and computer science.
