“Legislation against racist language and behaviour became a model for identifying varieties of harassment and discrimination in the workplace and in the public arena of comment and discussion; pressure has increased for what might be called an 'isomorphic' approach in law to any act or form of words that could be interpreted as stigmatising others or demeaning their human dignity – hence the 'Single Equality' legislation we have seen developed and debated lately.”
“I also think there's some potential for using the word 'isomorphic' with regards to simulation, but whatever.”
“This is called isomorphic correspondence, and it is "the relationship between the appearance of a visual form and a comparable human behavior" (Luke Wroblewski,”
“Hence, mathematical logic suggests that the application of mathematical physics to the universe as a whole can generate two different types of multiverse: classes of non-isomorphic but elementarily equivalent models; and classes of non-isomorphic and elementarily inequivalent models.”
“In this case, the models of the theory will be mutually non-isomorphic and elementarily inequivalent.”
“Whilst isomorphic models must be elementarily equivalent, there is no need for elementarily equivalent models to be isomorphic.”
“The class of models of a complete theory will be mutually non-isomorphic, but they will nevertheless be elementarily equivalent.”
“(In the case of a complete theory, the models of different cardinality will be elementarily equivalent, even if they are non-isomorphic).”
“Models of different cardinality obviously cannot be isomorphic, hence any theory, complete or incomplete, which has at least one model of infinite cardinality, will have a multiverse associated with.”
“If you group present life by inheritable morphological characteristics, you should get another nested hierarchy that is isomorphic to the NH of descent/speciation/reproductive isolation because, ha ha, inheritable morphological characteristics are INHERITED.”
