II 192
Turing machine/Genz: e.g. instructions that correspond to a certain position can only be:
Prints 0Prints 1
Move the tape one square to the right
Move the tape one square to the leftIf there is a 1 in the square, go to statement i If there is a 0 in this square, go to the statement i Stop And that is all there is to it. --- II 193
Logic/Mathematics/Physics/Genz: if the laws of physics were different, it might be impossible to build a Turing machine.
N.B.: it might be impossible to calculate the sum of two numbers!Proof/Genz: is therefore dependent on natural laws. --- II 195
Initial conditions/Initial states/nature/Genz: in nature there are countless initial states. But a training machine could not list them all, because it could not represent them all differently.

Initial conditions/initial states/nature/Genz: in nature there are countless initial states. But a Turing machine could not list them all, because it could not represent them all differently.

Holding Problem/Non-Hold-Theorem/Genz: Could it be that a future physics (other than ours) allows to do infinite calculation steps in finite time?
Turing machine/Genz: a possible world in which more is possible than the logic allows could not be simulated by a Turing machine. Genz: Thesis: I do not see that it has to be the case that in the updated world every sequence has to be simulated by a Turing machine. David DeutschVsGenz: (The Fabric of Reality): assumes that everything in the actual world can be simulated by a Turing machine. From this he deduces that the universe collapses, because an infinitely growing universe cannot be simulated by a Turing machine. GenzVsDeutsch: reversed: the answer to the question of the ultimate fate of the universe, based on physical facts, will also determine whether this fate can be simulated by a Turing machine. |
