I read your recent paper where you discuss how comp circumvents thattheorem.But do not understand your argument. It is equivalent IMO to comp circumventing the uncertainty principle. Could you discuss this?

`The problem is that to explain this to you, I need to know how far you`

`go in the UD-Argument.`

`If you have gone through the 8 steps, you should know that all we need`

`to assume is a (classical, quantum, whatever) universal formalism/`

`theory, and I use the numbers+add+mult to fix the thing.`

`Then you know that in that universal formalism, notably in the`

`arithmetical reality, we can prove the existence of an infinity of`

`computations (or of finite piece of computations: the first person`

`will not see the difference) going through your state, defined by some`

`substitution level. Below the level, and thus in the "apparent`

`matter", there will be an infinity of computations needed to describe`

`exactly that matter (the global FPI domain in arithmetic). This makes`

`a priori the apparent primitive matter non-clonable. The primitive`

`matter is literally a statistical sum on infinity of histories/`

`computations, and you need the entire running of the UD to define it`

`(to get the global FPI). It is not something a priori duplicable.`

`So, indeterminacy, non-locality, and non-cloning, are, qualitatively,`

`consequence of the comp hypothesis. QM confirms this (which *proves*`

`nothing, to be sure).`

`If our (sharable) level of substitution is exactly the quantum level`

`(that is for example the position and impulsion of our particles at`

`the Heisenberg uncertainty level, or just above) then quantum`

`mechanics will be exactly derivable from comp. If our substitution`

`level is below the Heisenberg uncertainty level, (we would have a`

`quantum brain/computer) then things are more complex. As the UD`

`emulates also all quantum computations, the reversal physics/`

`arithmetic is still obtained, but QM could no more be the fundamental`

`theory in physics, and might appear as an approximation of an unknown`

`theory (something like a non-linear QM). I doubt this from the`

`evidences both from introspection, biology and physics. If our subst`

`level is far above the quantum level, then QM can still be derivable`

`from arithmetic, but some constants can be geographical (and thus`

`variable in the whole of the physical reality).`

`We can come back on this. Better to be completely convinced by the UDA`

`before, as it gives the frame in which address your difficult question.`
