If you will read the Wiki pages on the model, you will see that having this new organization of its resources totally changed the possibilities of the LCS. It organized it into one whole thing as communication went from what might be called line of sight to allow any IUOC to interact with any other IUOC. This eventually allowed the Union of all IUOCs that is AUM. If you look at Cellular Automatons, interaction might be considered to be line of sight only. Data travels in 'straight lines' and once it runs into other data, there is mutual destruction of that data. Hard to create and exchange meaningful communications that way or to spread interesting new things around. This self organization to produce universal communication now permits the creation of what I referred to as a meta reality, standing above the LCS in that while the LCS is deterministic, this permitted the IUOCs to have fundamental free will as in freely, without constraint, exchanging data and this is the origin and fundamental source of free will. With this now free exchange of data between IUOCs, there could now begin to develop meanings within what was entirely random data. Much had to occur within the IUOCs as there data crashes could still occur. But now some useful code developed within one IUOC could be sent out over the RWW and be picked up and hopefully usefully used by many other IUOCs. So this opened the door to many future developments. There was a long road ahead, but it was eventually followed to the successful development of Consciousness.
So by this one change of and as self organization within the LCS, we have done the following:
* Created the IUOCs out of a sea of random data.
* Created the RWW as the universal communication buss.
* Permitted the Union of all IUOCs that eventually became AUM.
* Created the fundamental basis for free will of IUOCs, and thus of ourselves as VR avatars.
* Created the conditions for all meaning to be created out of randomness.
* Created the necessary conditions that allowed Consciousness to develop.
So as what is studied as pure mathematics here is a fundamental property of Reality as the LCS, we see that it is fundamental to everything else and the development of Consciousness and all meanings.
This brief outline is spread out over numerous pages of the model but here is the link page to all model pages. http://wiki.my-big-toe.com/The_MBT_Model_Link_Page
You might keep in mind that while I did this write up, it is still Tom Campbell's model of Reality and his direct input from interaction with me is fully there. There are no aspects of this, other than references to Indra's Net, which Tom has not included in his books, including references if not explicitly including them in his discussion and explanations. Tom was trying to keep the books at a reasonable size (a joke to many people) and at a beginners level (which many will also consider to be a joke, considering the complexity of the ideas). This is why you must really read and study his books before you really get into full understanding of what all Tom has to say. While some criticize the length of his books and their perceived repetition, saying that I don't need all that to understand things, it is clear from their comments that understanding still escapes them.
