### Re: Is Colorized life more powerful than life computationally?

... then U doesn't really solve the halting problem. Solving the halting problem for only some cases is possible but kind of pointless. as I wrote many times U(m) halts on m if m halts and return the tape WITHOUT halting if m does not halt for me it is an interesting challenge to find U if you or a...

### Re: Is Colorized life more powerful than life computationally?

and you actually know that a given non-halting input doesn't halt after a finite amount of time, then if that can be done with a regular turing machine, you can construct a contradiction using the same construction that has already been mentioned many, many, many times in this thread. how do you cr...

### Re: Is Colorized life more powerful than life computationally?

when does it return the tape? how does it know when to return the tape? How does it know the input does or doesn't halt so it can determine whether to return the tape/etcetera?? those are things that have to be discovered, but U can not solve the halting problem by having a "return the tape" state ...

### Re: Is Colorized life more powerful than life computationally?

So you're just defining "solving the halting problem" as "being able to return "X halts" whenever X halts [but not necessarily ever returning "X doesn't halt" when it doesn't]"? Well then of course the halting problem is "solvable", but this is a really weak and kind of bizarre notion of "solvabili...

Define a single time in the future, after N iterations of U, where you can be certain that U has halted, then. Otherwise you can't say you know.
are you saying there is no turing machine U as I specified ? assuming there is and I find it then I can tell you how it works

I have. As I understand, you're trying to solve the halting problem with a Turing machine. That is proven to be impossible. that depend on your definition of "solve", it is proven using the classical logic that the halting problem is semi-decidable and my definition of the turing machine U is perfe...

### Re: Is Colorized life more powerful than life computationally?

How do you expect to go from "U halts iff the input turing machine halts" to "you can tell within finite time based on the current state of U whether the input turing machine halts"? Also, obviously, no, life cannot solve the halting problem. I didn't quite get what you mean, assuming that there is...

Yes, things like turing oracles can solve the halting problem, but it's very obvious that CGoL is equivalent only to turing machines and so cannot.
if there is a turing machine U as I described before then Life can solve the halting problem by simulating U

Can you reiterate what you find wrong about this argument: there is nothing wrong, you are right if you believe that you can not solve the halting problem with Life then you can also believe that you can not solve it by colored Life. I put my idea for colored Life aside for a while now I just respo...

...How?? The proof that the halting problem is, in general, unsolvable doesn't assume its own conclusion; the proof relies on a sort of self-reference yes, but this self-reference isn't in the logical structure of the proof, so there's not any problem with the logic. as far as I understand and stud...

Also, how would the halting problem work if the machine, apart from “Halt” and “Doesn't halt”, can somehow “Half-halt”? How does fuzzy logic work with this? imagine we have a partial solution to the halting problem meaning we have program P(p) that on most input halt with output 0 or 1 or does not ...

Okay, you apparently meant something like "remove the set of single-color Turing machines from the set of colored Turing machines".

Why would you "remove all turing machines from the set of colored turing machines"? Colored Turing machines are still Turing machines, so it seems like you've either created a convoluted definition of the empty set, or you're not wording things clearly enough for me to understand. colored turing ma...

It's still a Turing machine, so the original diagonal argument still applies. Even if you do insist on restricting the alphabet, then you can convert any Turing machine into an equivalent 2-symbol Turing machine by increasing the number of states. let me give you another analogy, if you translate a...
