Wow, I thought I was reading Marc Geddes there. :) But seriously,
you've presented a lot of ideas without any method of verification.
It's just empty philosophy.

I submit that everything in the universe is made of boobles, and there
are several types:

Type 1 boobles: matter
Type 2 boobles: energy
Type 3 boobles: qualia.

Problem solved.

But in reality, I take the Leitl position: all experiences look
special from inside the system. You're baffled by the language
because you are the language.
