Not at all. It is here and now. I have already interview such machines.

Are there any such machines available to interview online?

I can give you the code in Lisp, and it is up to you to find a good free lisp. But don't mind too much, AUDA is an integral description of the interview. Today, such interviews is done by paper and pencils, and appears in books and papers. You better buy Boolos 1979, or 1993, but you have to study more logic too.

It is almost applicable, but the hard part is that it is blind to its own blindness, so that the certainty offered by mathematics comes at a cost which mathematics has no choice but to deny completely. Because mathematics cannot lie,
```
G* proves <>[]f

Even Peano Arithmetic can lie.
Mathematical theories (set of beliefs) can lie.

Only truth cannot lie, but nobody know the truth as such.

```
Something that is a paradox or inconsistent is not the same thing as an intentional attempt to deceive. I'm not sure what 'G* proves <>[]f' means but I think it will mean the same thing to anyone who understands it, and not something different to the boss than it does to the neighbor.
```

Actually it will have as much meaning as there are correct machines (a lot), but the laws remains the same. Then adding the non-monotonical umbrella, saving the LĂ´bian machines from the constant mistakes and lies they do, provides different interpretation of []f, like
```
I dream,
I die,
I am in a cul-de-sac
I get wrong

etc.

It will depend on the intensional nuances in play.

```
```

```
it cannot intentionally tell the truth either, and no matter how sophisticated and self-referential a logic it is based on, it can never transcend its own alienation from feeling, physics, and authenticity.
```
```
That is correct, but again, that is justifiable by all correct sufficiently rich machines.
```
```
Not sure I understand. Are you saying that we, as rich machines, cannot intentionally lie or tell the truth either?
```
```
No, I am saying that all correct machines can eventually justify that if they are correct they can't express it, and if they are consistent, it will be consistent they are wrong. So it means they can eventually exploits the false locally. Team of universal numbers get entangled in very subtle prisoner dilemma.
```Universal machines can lie, and can crash.
