I'm fine up to here. > The alien should be able to shut down the universal dovetailer.

Thanks to I am aware of Step 7: but I don't agree that all computations need correspond to a continuation of an OM. You agree that some "continuations" can actually be a non-continuation, don't you? For instance, in Quantum suicide, there are versions of you which die (visibly for other observers) - so there are "continuations" of your state which code your termination. I do not see following from UDA that all computational continuations need correspond to OMs. For instance, in step 1 we say "yes doctor", but we don't say yes to every doctor, for instance to the one arriving with some cogwheels -> "no doctor" ;-) So, what I am saying is that maybe in some cases (cul de sac) _all_ (2^aleph_zero) continuations actually code for termination (=the teleport fails completely, but annihilation unfortunately succeeds). How can you exclude that? Are you assuming that _every_ computation is conscious qua computation? (then I would agree -> QI; but I don't share that assumption, and I don't see it anywhere in UDA) Best Wishes, Günther --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
