Yes, that is the basic intuition of why we have to extract physics from arithmetic, and eventually on how to do the derivation. If we are implemented by programs, then all the infinitely many computations realising us are executed in arithmetic (or in any Turing complete) theory, and physics is what emerge from the statistical interference of all computations defined below our mechanist substitution level. Then, the mathematics of self-reprdocution and self-reference do the rest. > It seems like a simple explaination. If so then quantum interference takes > place within a duplicated algorithm. Does this make any sense? That makes perfect sense. I work on this since 40 years. It makes materialist believer nervous, though, because eventually it refutes physicalism. Physics becomes the science of digital machine prediction in arithmetic. Advantage: incompleteness not only enforces the theory of quanta, but extend it into a more general theory of qualia, explaining why the physical (but also the theological and the psychological) divides into sharable and non sharable part. It shows a relation between consciousness and the quantum, but it is the reverse of the most usual “theories”. The quantum appearances are explained by “classical mechanism” and “classical” computer science. Theologically, if we assume digital mechanism in the cognitive science, we have to abandon Aristotle’s materialist Metaphysics, and go back to Plato, even to the neoplatonist’s reconstruction of Aristotle theory of matter, where matter is almost defined by where god lose control, that is, where God itself can no more do any prediction, like with the self-duplication.
