The whole learnstorm thing was fundamentally flawed. You earned points in the competition by completing "mastery" challenges, of which there are a limited number. However, if you had completed most or all of the available mastery challenges before the competition had started then you were at a distinct disadvantage during the competition.

you're confusing conceptual and abstract. they're different.

concepts are the components of thought, and require a mind.

logic (math) is abstract and does not require a mind.

the question of whether or not logical absolutes can exist without a universe is probably not a useful one to consider.

Every program is a part of some other program, and rarely fits.
