MANY WORLDS POSTULATION

The paranormal and occult have many sides, discuss all other paranormal/occult topics that don't fit anywhere else.

Re: MANY WORLDS POSTULATION

So is that a yes or a no?

Re: MANY WORLDS POSTULATION

Technically, infinitely many.

Infinity does not compute!

Re: MANY WORLDS POSTULATION

For example...

Alternatively, fuzzy logic offers a continuous spectrum of logical states represented in the unit interval of real numbers [0,1]—it is a many-valued logic with infinitely-many truth-values, and thus the sand moves smoothly from "definitely heap" to "definitely not heap", with shades in the intermediate region. Fuzzy hedges are used to divide the continuum into regions corresponding to classes like definitely heap, mostly heap, partly heap, slightly heap, and not heap.

Re: MANY WORLDS POSTULATION

Sounds like a fitting description for how the universe works. . . more or less.

Re: MANY WORLDS POSTULATION

Truth value sets can be pretty exotic.

There is the usual {T,F} of binary logic. Or {0,1} if you like.

Then in ternary logic, there is {T, F, M} or {0,1,1/2}.

In fuzzy logic, any number between 0 and 1 (inclusive) can be a truth value.

But there are many logics with truth value sets that are what are known as lattices, which look like this.

The top value would be interpreted as "true" and the bottom "false" with many intermediate values.

And it gets a bit more exotic beyond that.

Stands to reason that binary logic is insufficient to fully portray even the physical universe, let alone all of reality.

Re: MANY WORLDS POSTULATION

Well, you'd be wrong there.
