Hi Christian,

You are right that I do not demonstrate a mathematical
error in Penrose. Rather, his overall argument is wrong,
based on an unrealistic model of human brains. They are
properly modeled by finite state machines. I think the
inability of Penrose's argument to work using finite
state machines indicates that he has just uncovered a
property of infinite sets that is not relevant to human
