According to Robert Rosen (who so far identified in
the best ways those scanty views about his
'complexity' or my 'wholistic thinking') said about a
difference between machine and natural system (my
wording)that the former is a design within boundaries
while the latter is occurring without boundaries in
connection with the totality - and eo ipso is not
TM-computable. I like the word for such: impredicative
as subject to unrestricted (unlimited) number and
quality of variables with impact of changes beyond the
(snapshot) view we observe.
I believe 'our own (present-day) thoughts are that
much simplistic that a TM CAN provide 'experiential'
satisfaction. Comprehending the wholeness (tatality)
is beyond our mind's 2005-level capability.
Which does not translate in shoving it under the rug.
