The behaviour of the computer at any moment is determined by the symbols which he is observing, and his " state of mind" at that moment. We may suppose that there is a bound B to the number of symbols or squares which the computer can observe at one moment.... Los Alamos Science - vii. lappuse2002Pilnskats - Par šo grāmatu
