Turing machines are more powerful than real computers because they have
infinite memory, so any limitations of Turing machines is even more true
of real computers.-----
Please present an algorithm, or state-transition function for a turing
a. A real time clock.
b. A true random number generator.
Good luck with these. You'll need it.
Of course, my Mac has these features as an integral part of the machine.
Indeed, I wouldn't like to try to run a modern OS without them...
Also, I note that you have again ignored a call for definitions of your
vocabulary, and mathematics to support your wild claims. I'm increasingly
beginning to think that you aren't capable of providing either of them.
