Hi Bruno Marchal Penrose's noncomputability argument is based on Godel's theorem, which along these lines, IMHO also makes rational thinking leaky.

King Personally I go with Roger Penrose and his conjecture that, as I personally understand it, conscious experience is noncomputable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFbrnFzUc0U Penrose is right, but with a wrong argument. The fact that consciousness is not computable, nor even definable, is a consequence of mechanism. It does not refute mechanism, it confirms it. Bruno Which is not to say that IMHO experience can be understood through Leibniz's metaphysics of substances (using category theory). IMHO, that's the only way. ?
