But physics/chemistry are turing emulable, and by UDA, cannot solve the
problems.
At least comp explmain why anything turing emulable can know non
turing-emulable truth about herself. Comp gives a big role to the
uncomputable, given that the first person must predict its experience
on some limit of all computational process, and that limit can be shown
to be non turing emulable.
