Dear Bill,

This is the link to Ben's paper that discusses division algebras:

http://goertzel.org/ben/ons.html

I found these other links that might help give flavor to what division

algebras are talking about:

Your comment about quantum jumps, I think, is on the mark! I have been

discussing with some local friends the idea that the Universe U is

divided into subsets that are constantly changing and comparing

themselves to each other. When two, or more, subsets match each other

they "collapse" into each other. If we think of each subset of U has an

information content, then these quantum jumps involve the increase of

Shannon information.

At to the idea that "The Calculus" is the main reason for the failure

of unification, it is admitted my many experts that this is indeed on of

the problems! Another I see is the assumption of absolutes. I don't

think the key notions of relativity have been carried far enough.

Kindest regards,

Stephen
