Some constant might be intrinsically not computable. Normally, the physical laws should at some point take into account the probability of (self) halting, which would introduce a non computable constant in nature, although it would be computable from the halting oracle. Mechanism prevents the physical reality from being entirely computable. I suspect Planck constant to be not computable, because if we extract QM from arithmetic, the Planck constant might very well related to the mechanist substitution level. We cannot choose a theory according to our metaphysical state, especially in metaphysics. It has to be corroborated by the facts.
