Re: a description of you + a description of billiard ball can bruise you?

Dear Bruno,

    Your claim reminds me of the scene in the movie Matrix: Reloaded where
Neo deactivates some Sentinels all the while believing that he is Unplugged.
This leads to speculations about "matrix in a matrix", etc.

    There is still one question that needs to be answered: what is it that
gives rise to the differentiation necessary for one "description" to
"bruise" (or cause any kind of change) in another "description" if we
disallow for some thing that acts as an "interface" between the two.

   What forms the "interface" in your theory?
