Stop there. No need for anything further; such a mind will go into an
infinite loop easily; just ask it to go into an infinite loop.

You haven't started to answer the question! Your position (as far as I
can see) is "Because of Turing's results, any fixed goal mind will go
into an infinite loop." You then provide one example of a fixed goal
mind that goes into an infinite loop.

"This fruit is an apple, hence all fruits are apples."

Redo the proof.
