Fully agreed. I regard his ideas as an essential
ingredient of any good 'theory of everything.' If
I were about 10x smarter I would take Barbour,
Tegmark, Rees, Wolfram, Hofstadter, etc. and
figure out how they fit together. I get the
feeling that I can just barely glimpse the
outlines, like a caveman watching an airplane.
