We agree on this.
Then I repeat my question, why add useless wheels within wheels that
explain nothing to otherwise nice theories?
To take into account the discovery already made by arithmetical
machine that there is a transcendental truth responsible for their
beliefs, which is beyond their beliefs. The space of such true but non
rationally communicable truth is axiomatized, at the propositional
level, by G* minus G, and this permits a transparent interpretation of
Plotinus theology in arithmetic, and this illustrates already the fact
that computationalism leads to a Platonist theology, and contradicts
the common Aristotelian metaphysics/theology implicit among many
The experience of "God", in the large sense I have given is part of
the data in the puzzle. You might read my paper "La machine Mystic",
or the second part of the sane04 paper for more on this, if you are
interested. This shows also that arithmetic explains not only the
apparent existence of matter (constructively, and thus making comp
testable), but it gives some light on altered consciousness and other
brain perturbation experience, and "mystical" type of knowledge/
beliefs/comprehension, making some other aspect of comp testable in
some first person sense.
