Classes of theories

[15-Oct-97 ]

  I just discovered a text that I wrote somewhere around 1991. I hope it has a good combination of sense and humor to be amusing. It was an answer to a part of somebody's post on
... "There are infinitely many theories interpreting a given finite set of experimental data"...
There seems to be just one object that is unique for a given set of data, and it is the CLASS of all theories that explain it. Just a few related ideas:
All this stuff can be formally defined in terms of sets of theories, functional operators in semantic space, projections, factorizations, or some other form, and probably even should (or maybe it was?).
