Chapter 10 of Immediate Distant Action.

Many difficult concepts will be discussed in this chapter, but the basis of all the ideas in it is profoundly simple. It is that the totality of the conceptual scheme we use to structure mathematics and physics is required to be zero at every level. In that case, we can develop a dualistic mathematics which has a very specific relationship to what we conceive of as the physical world. Many physical notions are generated in this process, in particular the idea that we cannot fully explain physical systems without the dualistic notion of time-delayed action between the discreet objects of physical measurement occuring at the saem time as unmediated instantaneous correlation-at-a-distance (UICAAD). The analysis is used to discuss the nature of gravity and inertia, and the quantum/classical transition, and to highlight the significant role played by angular momentum in unifying the fundamental concepts of physics at the quantum level.
