Matti,

I sorry to be so dense (and I mean that), but is your next level of

objective space that of 16-dimensions? Or do you effectively add

them on 1-dimension at a time? Does your observer located on

a 4-D sheet see what is objectively true? I'm still having trouble

with those extra dimensions being real and therefore not being

the creation of a subjective observer. If those extra dimensions

are real, I would expect them to be in the initial object; as you

know, where I would prefer them to be.

I am reminded of when I performed some simulations of insect

population dynamics. No matter what initial population ratio

of eggs : larva : pupa : adult, the final result always converges

on a constant ratio. If you then use the final ratio as an initial

condition, the solution never changes that ratio. Likewise, if

it was appropriate (and easy) to substitute your infinite-dimension

result for the 4-D surface in a 8-D space object, and again

substitute the result obtained by the previous substitution,

over and over, would not this procedure converge on a final

objective infinite structure requiring no further modifications?

I believe such a structure would interpret itself so-to-speak.

I speculate that the converged on structure would be a

doubling structure consistant with your initial object,

consistant with my analysis of particular infinite product

identities, and preserving the most important predictions

of TGD.

Sincerely,

Bill
