I think, why don't we write a better one than theirs, one radically different but much better?

Consider this: They do use programmatic mathematical notations to model the universe, however, not in the way I had originally thought. My version has more of a programmatic than a maths structure.

In fact, if you actually look at what I now have in mind, it would seem like some Visual Basic and C++ hybrid, very very much like programming code. You can even make a compiler and run that, I think. This consists of a subtle but important difference. Maybe he had thought of that too, but from what I managed to read up to now, no.

I hesitate to add a third: Greed (or perhaps disires)
