This is rather hard for me to do here, because I'm
trying to develop a radical new theory and won't talk
that here as I agreed.

Let's just say that that I see no reason why reality
should be 100% consistent (in mathematical terms).
Suppose mathematics was not in fact the single unitary
thing that mathematicians think it is? Suppose that
there are in fact several different kinds of
mathematics needed to fully capture reality
('dualities' is the technical term) and the different
kinds of math are not totally consistent with each

It's also a dogma that mathematical truth is eternal
(time independent). I see no reason why this should
be so. Suppose that mathematical truth can in fact,
shift slightly with time?

Combine the two ideas above and you have an idea for
'mathematical causality'. Mathematical causality
could the process of the different kinds of
mathematics becoming more consistent with time.
