Hi John:

My purpose for asking for comments re is "definition" a mathematical
process was to clear up some questions re my model.

1) Does my Everything - since it contains all does - it contain the
Nothing? Well it certainly contains its side of the defining boundary so
my current response is yes to the maximum degree possible.

2) Was mathematics always present? Well my founding definition results in
incompleteness and inconsistency [complex mathematical concepts] and is
unavoidable so it always was. So my current answer is yes mathematics has
always been present at the fundamental level.

3) As to mind and body and observer I currently see all this as missing the
real issue: in my view sub systems such as we do not observe or
unilaterally decide, but rather we involuntarily participate. I see two
possibilities that are not mutually exclusive: 1) the state of the universe
just prior to my closing or not closing the switch that submits this post
spontaneously appeared in the metaverse or 2) a sequence [or sequences] of
states from some earlier initiating state(s) end in the same prior
state. These are not distinguishable. Because of all the other poised
conditions in the prior state and external noise I find inherent in the
process I believe an infinite number of new sequences emerge from this
state. In some I close the switch and in some I do not.
