The following 3 questions are about reality systems. (again if it's too much for one chat then please spread them out)
About combinations: The maximum amount of combinations for 8 bits are 256 - and for 32 bits there are about 4 billion.
So it doesn't take a lot of bits to create a lot of unique possibilities. But the LCS has been around for a very long time.
Do you know if the LCS has ever run into the situation of a VR actualizing all of its possible combinations?
If I was to go to NPMR and create a rule-set for a new reality, with my primitive human ingenuity, how difficult would it be for me to invent a rule-set that hasn't already had all of its significant potential exhausted?
I'm interested in your progress regarding something you wrote in MBT:
That gives me something to work on in my spare time. I have been exploring NPMR, NPMRN, OS, and PMR for only thirty years - there is much that I have not yet seen and experienced. Perhaps the NPMRn represent the outermost layer of our practical (operational) reality onion, leaving NPMR as a simple NPMRn container or media - and only AUM beyond that. One must eventually run into the outer edges of the greater consciousness ecosystem, the boundary of the AUM-reality itself.
This is not an attempt to make you spill juicy details - but have you done exploration in this area since writing MBT, and has the exploration been successful? And is it difficult? If yes, why?
There is another quote from MBT that I have always wondered about:
[...] one such [NPMRn] system has few rules of interaction [...] I stay away from that reality as much as possible because it is dreadfully rough, mean spirited, and unpredictable - one can easily get damaged there.
I always remember this because I thought "How can you be damaged in the non-physical if you are careful and don't give in to fear?"
Has that reality system seen improvement since you wrote MBT? In 15+ PMR years a lot of NPMR cycles go by, so that is a lot of time for change, correct?
If and when the reality resolves its problems, will it probably then become evolutionarily faster or "better" than the more rule-bounded systems?
