Remarks on Computability and Stability

Daegene Song


Previously, it has been suggested that the Gödel-type non-algorithmic process may be associated with consciousness. This paper discusses the halting problem and the non-computability of self-referential consciousness. Specifically, this discussion outlines the distinguishability between the halting and looping of computation, or the semantic understanding between true and false, that may be associated with the non-computability of consciousness. The nonlocality intrinsically possessed in quantum theory is one of the striking features of nature that has received a lot of attention. In particular, Bell-type inequalities have been not only extremely powerful but practical tools in quantum information technology. A numerical approach is used to describe different cases of Bell-CHSH inequalities, particularly with different numbers of the choices of measurement bases. It is shown that there are variations of inequalities that are relatively stable against measurement errors.
