So on and so on.
Until you reach maximum intellectual entropy ? The total collective
consciousness of an intellectual state beginning at a given point in time?
The concept just makes next to little sense to me .. I mean, to what end ?
You'd have to have a fundamental, instinctive, understanding of at least the
4 dimensions and problary qm's to cope with this sort of multi-awareness...
and again, to what end ??
