Computability within machines and within humans
Foundational Questions Institute: Undecidability, Uncomputability, and Unpredictability Essay Contest (2019-2020) Support materials for the submission by Bruce Camber in April, 2020.
|Background: The FQXi challenge to engage the study of the concept of “Computability” has been accepted. We begin what we hope will become a rigorous analysis and study. We’ve started with introductory comments and first impressions. This group of eighteen pages will be references to subsequent work.
 Computability (Relation). What happens in Notation-1? Is it a demonstration of computability? How is that different from what happens in Notation-202? The very nature of a computable function shall be investigated further. Do the algorithms of computational logic, like dimensionless constants, necessarily require a machine? Does the mind and consciousness require a brain?
Our theory of computation will logically start within Notation-1 and logically extend through each notation to Notation-202.
A profoundly relational model, everything is connected to everything, everywhere, for all time.
