Only if my generalised brain is the entire universe. Look at my discussion with Niklas Thisel. Comp entails that, from the first person perspective some universal feature of our observable neighborhood will appears non-finite, non-discrete, non-computable, etc. So I agree with Russell here! When you say: >A continuous universe would not by emulable by a Turing >Machine You are right! For the same reason you cannot emulate real randomness with a UTM. But it is easy to explain why UTM are right to identify real randomness with the result of self-localisation after self-duplication-like experiments. To sum up roughly: 3-determinisme => 1-indeterminisme 3-locality => 1-non-locality 3-discreteness => 1-continuum (existence of) 3-computability => 1-uncomputability Bruno
