In 2020 I hope to have a book published a called 'On Nature' that clarifies the Greek thinker Herakleitos (also in relation to Parmenides). This book is an introduction to my 'Opus Magnum' and introduces a more primordial theory on time and thus ontology. It will solve all problems in philosophy.
who are you quoting? remember that we can see the difference between philosophy and philosophizing, big, Big difference !!

The world is continuous, but the mind is discrete.
David Mumford

So, can we take it that Computer Science - on its own - ('discreteness pur sang on steroids") does not model the real world?
