Coming back to the FINITENESS CONDITIONS presented first in
http://www.cs.nyu.edu/pipermail/fom/2017-May/020481.html
We have found an even better Finiteness Condition. This has been kind
of swimming in my head for years in various contexts, but somehow
never jelled properly into a Clear Simple Statement. This is kind of
shocking that I had not seen it clearly before.
NEW FINITENESS CONDITION. Let R containedin Q[0,1]^k x Q[0,1]^k. There
are finitely many p appearing in some element of R that alters some q
<= p.
NEW MAXIMAL EMULATION STATEMENT. Any R containedin Q[0,1]^k x
Q[0,1]^k with the new finiteness condition that is order preserving
and does not alter 0 is ME usable.
Yes, it is UNFAIR to expect that you know all of the definitions here.
Q[0,1] = Q intersect [0,1].
R containedin Q[0,1]^k x Q[0,1]^k is ME usable means that for finite
subsets of Q[0,1]^k, some maximal emulation contains its image under
R.
(x,y) in Q[0,1]^k x Q[0,1]^k alters q if and only if there exists 1 <=
i <= k such that q = x_i iff q not= y_i. R containedin Q[0,1]^k x
Q[0,1]^k alters q if and only if some element of R alters q.
R is order preserving if and only if R(x,y) implies x,y are order equivalent.
The above New Proposition are provably equivalent to Con(SRP) over WKL_0.
The question arises as to whether ZFC is sufficient for dimension k =
3 and ZFC\P or Z_2 for dimension k = 2.
I just cannot tell at this point. HOWEVER, if we use r-emulations
instead of emulations = 2-emuations, quantifying over r, then I think
it likely that the previous paragraph is correct. And even for the
previous many times discussed
MAXIMAL EMULATION DROP/1. MED/1. For finite subsets of Q[0,1]^k, some
r-maximal emulation is drop equivalent at
(1,1/2,...,1/k),(1/2,...,1/k,1/k).
where we are quantifying over k,r. Ultimately, we should be able to
get independence from ZFC with k = 3 and very small r fixed, and
independence from ZFC/P with k = 2 and very small r fixed.
