In fact I have 'multiple personality disorder' - from Thursday to
Monday I say 'Yes' to the doctor, on Tuesday and Wednesday I am no
longer the same personality because my medications have run out ;-)
Well, it's Thursday here now and I have a fresh supply of anxiety-
suppression pills, so I'm off to see the Doctor again!! He's talking
about this scary Step 7 and I am starting to get sweaty palms, so in a
fit of madness I reached into the bookshelf and drew out a Penrose
volume which seemed to suggest I might do better to have a cup of tea
and a little sleep...

Well, this particular AI which calls itself Kim can conceive of it, so
I guess all other AIs could....unless there is a special class of AI
that can only conceive of computables? Perhaps I should put "Road to
Reality" back on the bookshelf for now!
