I am now wondering whether I need another feature for the noumenon...
i.e., a function describing the relationship between the independent axes.
Everett would essentially put in the identity function y=x so that
a majority of other worlds would be nearly identical to our world. My call
for instantaneousness would then mean that y=f(x) and x=finverse(y) would
happen immediately or the equivalence would not be. Yes, I think that
a function of (x,y) pairs should be part of the noumenon; especially since
all of you probably thought it was? Is this a breakthru or breakdown?
