while this one liner might best describe TUNES, it doesn't really
stress the related point towards Askemos.

But am I wrong if I understand that TUNES needs to be theoretical
sound to achieve it's goals?

Having the means of expression being in charge requires theoretical
soundness to me.  ("The meaning is determined by the theory behind.")

May I ask: "In charge of what?"

Not yet, let's try a few.

Ok, that's deemed bad.

TUNES - computation based on theory
TUNES - computation based on ideas
TUNES - computation based on semantics
TUNES - defining the semantics of compuations
TUNES - basics of programming



The worst of harm may often result from the best of intentions.
