This is a good description of comp before Gödel and Church's thesis. 
After, comp makes such interpretations provably wrong or inconsistent.
To understand comp + Gödel forces us toward more modesty, including the 
modesty in front on any self-referentially correct (by constuction) 
universal machine or entity.
