I find quite possible that QM explains biochemistry, given the

successfully, but this is besides my point).
But you are coherent: if you want materialism, you will need a non
turing
emulable theory of matter, and of mind.
Good luck, because it needs already some amount of work to conceive
something not Turing emulable in math, and in physics, it is even
more
difficult.
But QM is based on complex numbers over the reals, which are already
not Turing
emulable.
Has a real number ever been measured by any physicist?
Jason

Sure. He measured one side of the right triangle to be 1cubit and the
other side to
be 1cubit and concluded that the third side was sqrt(2)cubit.
That's not an example of a physicist measuring a real number, nor is it a real
life example.

`In real life the physicist would wonder to how many significant figures he measured the
``sides of the triangle, and to how many significant figures he measured the angle of the
``triangle. Perhaps the physicist rounded to 1 cubit when in reality it was .99999909012
``cubits (or in constant flux as the atoms jostle around).
`

So he gets sqrt (1.99999909012).
