Default Maths, Matter and Mind

Fundamentalist, secular, and mystic physicists as seen through R. Penrose’s math-matter-mind triangle.

On Math, Matter and Mind: Piet Hut (IAS), Mark Alford (WashU), Max Tegmark (MIT): 2005: Cornell University

From the link... we will discuss three broad categories of world views that physicists may hold, which we label fundamentalist, mystic, and secular. They differ in their view of whether a physics framework will ultimately give access to all of reality. The three answers are, respectively: yes, the current framework; yes, a future framework; no, no framework present or future. In what follows, the fundamentalist view is advocated by Max Tegmark, the secular view by Mark Alford, and the mystic view by Piet Hut.
... it's just an idea
