SCSPL Computer Language Self-Configuring Self-Processing Language was stated this way: Now, SCSPL is based on concepts cybernetics, automata and extension of communication models (Shannon's) to come up with Telic Feedback and mechanisms of employing the so-called generalized utility to achieve maximal cosmic self-realization and refinement. Put simply, computation is used to model discrete systems and in doing this, one has to study membership, subsets, unions, intersections, complement, difference relations, symmetric differences. boolean algebra, Venn diagrams, self-similarity (especially when looking at fractal systems) etc. These are concepts Langan heavily uses in constructing the CTMU and principles like MAP, syndiffeonesis, unisections, MU and others come to mind. Under automation, when one looks at context-free languages in comparison to Langan's arguments concerning 'emergence' like when it comes to the idea of telic - ie pre-informational, pre-nomological and pre-syntactical phase of reality and the idea of reality emerging from the UBT. About protocomputationability and about constraints emerging from a realm that is free of them etc, there seems to be a link especially considering self-organization of cellular automata from initially 'disordered' states. Here is another excerpt: “Empirical/physical realty is not the foundation in the CTMU model; it is a part of the self-simulation of SCSPL reality. Page 42 of Langan's A New Kind of Reality Theory paper states "in effect, the universe becomes a 'self-simulation' running inside its own contents."” From "Logical Equivalence Between SMN and SCSPL".
