What seems clear to me from your response to Stathis is that you can
build something that does what it wants to do within a deterministic
system, such as the game of life.

Now you say we cannot predict the high level process of the mind to
know what the mind will do.  This is true in one sense: we cannot be
certain what the mind will do without ourselves instantiating the mind
and seeing what it does.  God himself cannot know what will happen 5
years from now in this world without us experiencing those 5 years and
making decisions throughout that period of time.

Hopefully this idea can bridge the gap between your view of the minds
unpredictability with Stathis and my idea that underlying the mind
exist predictable rules.
