I don't think your calling my analogy "bad" in any way negates the statemen=
made about knowing the working of the universe -- since I was not referring=
the theories behind its components, but how the system itself, as a whole,=
actually and pragmatically works from BOTH a subjective and objective viewp=
  The universe, like the internet depends for its operations on consciousne=
as well as its material and electrodynamic constituents.=20=20=20

Certainly, the construction of a jet fighter bomber, like the Internet or a=
complex system requiring intricate hardware, software and information=20
transfer and transformation processes, requires much mathematics and theore=
physics to determine the nature of all it's myriad parts and operating syst=
ems, as=20
well as determine the dynamics of its flight with relation to them, as well=
as with its surrounding environment -- whether it be radiative fields for t=
internet or more dense media for aircraft flight systems.=20=20=20

But, nevertheless, it doesn't take much knowledge of mathematics, and=20
especially the higher mathematics of physics, chemistry, thermodynamics, fl=
dynamics, electrodynamics, quantum dynamics, etc., etc., etc.   to learn HO=
W such a=20
jetliner works and how to fly it.   The only thing necessary for the pilot =
know is that all those components are logically consistent with respect to=
chains of predictable causes and effects, and of course, obey all the laws =
physics -- without having to know the mathematics that explain those laws.

Assuredly, the designers and workers who conceived and build that airplane=
can get along perfectly fine with language based instructions coupled with =
diagrams and 3D models.   And, those who fly it need only learn and practic=
its operational functions consistent with its purposes... All, without know=
any of the mathematics that explains the physics of its components and syst=
or its flight characteristics.=20

So, when it comes down to actually flying the fighter plane, the essential=
component is the consciousness and mind of the pilot.   Even his brain, and=
knowledge of how it works, is immaterial -- so long as its internal structu=
and operating systems function properly as his consciously guided internal=
fly by-wire body control system and sensory transponder.   It's a fact that=
science cannot explain how those internal processes actually work, since th=
ey have=20
no idea how to explain the linkage between mind and brain or that between=20
mind and both will and awareness, the functional aspects of consciousness t=
hat is=20
dependent on the subjective experience or qualia of consciousness -- that, =
itself, can never be explained, empirically or objectively (but may be=20
examined subjectively and, consequently, inferred logically).

As for the way the universe works -- down to all the artifacts in it that=20
interface with us, and are dependent on our consciousness to exist, such as=
fighter-bombers and Internet's... I still say that -- since its motivationa=
l force=20
and reason for being is dependent upon consciousness, and would have no=20
purpose without it -- no amount of physical science and its mathematical th=
based on the assumptions that matter is its dominant a priori aspect, and t=
consciousness is an epiphenomena of that material substance, will ever be a=
to explain how all of it works in its totality or gestalt.=20=20=20

That's because, as I see it, consciousness -- as both subjective awareness=
and willful intent (which, together, have no mathematical symbologies or=20
physically measurable attributes) are entirely rootless, and beyond all met=
ric space=20
and time... And, forever exists in eternal emptiness as the primal zero-poi=
"singularity"...   Therefore, the root of collective consciousness was ther=
prior to the big bang, long before matter or substance first became manifes=
out of its inherent "spinergy," or infinite force of angular momentum... An=
certainly, before any of its evolved forms in its later involutional step-d=
into our metric space time continuum... That seems, almost amazingly, to be=
built just for us.   (Or, I can't help asking, was it us that built it?) </=

So, in any event, I can still say with full justification through simple=20
reverse engineering coupled with logical analysis and deductive reasoning .=
.. To=20
rely on mathematics and materialistic theories to explain this universe, an=
how it works in its entirety (which must include consciousness) -- is a pra=
in futility. Therefore, in my view, there can never be a valid reductive=20
"theory of everything" based on scientific materialism.=20=20=20

Besides, all that quantum theory can explain, even going as deep as the=20
multidimensional string theories of quantum gravity, is the properties of t=
energetic substance that surrounds the zero-point of consciousness... That,=
 in the=20
end, is not much different than my ABC theory -- which, going even further,=
encompasses both the multidimensional, bubble-like coenergetic fields and t=
analog electrodynamic processes of the field surface recording of holograph=
wave interference patterned information and its inductive resonant transfer=
one field energy phase order to another... With the mathematics of all that=
I assume, being similar to that of Iskakov.   The only difference is that I=
accept consciousness as being separate and outside of all of that changeabl=
substance, and assign 0 =3D 00 (zero =3D infinity) as the fundamental equat=
ion of the=20
universal root beness.

So, rest assured that it isn't all "science" or "mathematics" that I refer =
as being insufficient in explaining the universe and how it works or its=20
genesis -- but specifically -- "reductive material science" and ITS "mathem=

I hope this clears up my position in this controversy between the efficacy =
words versus math.   But, if not, at least that we can agree to disagree on=
the theoretical mechanisms -- but not on the fundamental principles themsel=

Best wishes,
