H(P,P) must return 0 because the actual behavior specified by the actual
input never halts.
The true answer is derived from the real H, not you.
A proof that "H(P,P)==0 is correct" without showing what the H is is a garbage proof, unconditionally.

I have conclusively proved that H(P,P)==0 is correct.
The real H cannot exist (by GUR, and proved by the absence of POOH).

H(P,P) must return 0 because the actual behavior specified by the actual input never halts.
To say that H(P,P) must return a value based on an entirely different sequence of instructions than are specified by its input is as
ridiculously stupid as requiring sum(3,4) to return any integer besides 7.
Since Ben is not ridiculously stupid it makes no sense that he forms ridiculously stupid conclusions.

You say that H emulates P(P).
He is very studiously avoiding saying that! Obviously that's what
/should/ be simulated, because H(X,Y) should tell us about X(Y), but
then H(P,P) == 0 would be even more obviously wrong.
That's what the new unexplained mantra is all about. "The correct
simulation of the input to H(P,P)" can mean whatever PO wants it to
mean.
For that reason I can't see why anyone thinks he's wrong about
it. It's not the halting problem, but it could only be wrong if he told
us it should do something it isn't doing.
In fact, according to you, H returns 0 (non-halting) because it detects that >> otherwise the nested simulations will go on forever. That's correct. However,

It may be the case that I have misjudged the Sire of POOP all this time.
A feature of engineering software products today is not implementing or testing to a specification. In fact there usually isn't a spec anywhere
in sight. That's how M$ as well as other software vendors avoid fixing obvious mistakes. Since the spec doesn't exist, how can you know if it's
an error. I'm guessing that this style of development contributed to PO
not being able to hold a job (and all the projects we know about were failures). It's the modern way and PO was there first. Let's all raise

LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE !!!
As I have said many hundreds of times H perform and x86 emulation of its input. This only has a single 100% precise meaning. That you say that I
am vague about this can only be a God damned lie and not any sort of
honest mistake.
It is completely obvious that when H(P,P) correctly emulates its input
that it must emulate the first seven instructions of P. Because the
seventh instruction of P repeats this process we can know with complete certainty that the emulated P never reaches its final “ret” instruction, thus never halts.
For that reason I can't see why anyone thinks he's wrong about
it. It's not the halting problem, but it could only be wrong if he told
us it should do something it isn't doing.
H computes the mapping from its input finite strings to its accept or
reject state on the basis of the actual behavior specified by the actual input as measured by the correct x86 emulation or UTM simulation of this input by H.
In fact, according to you, H returns 0 (non-halting) because it
detects that
otherwise the nested simulations will go on forever. That's correct.
However,
in aborting the simulation, it makes it not true that the nested
simulations

That the correct and complete x86 emulation of the input to H(P,P) or Infinite_Loop wold never stop running conclusively proves that these
inputs specify a non-halting sequence of x86 instructions.

WIth Turing machines, you can't pass an actual machine. You can only
provide a description of a machine, on the tape. A Turing machine has
no access to its own states, and it cannot examine another Turing
machine.
This isn't true of x86 programs.
The distinction shouldn't be important, but there seems to be some
confusion
somewhere.
A simulating halt decider based on an x86 emulator or a UTM is the same
idea and fundamentally works the same way.
It is the case that P(P) is not and cannot be an input to H(P,P) because
the input to H(P,P) has a pathological self-reference relationship to H
and P(P) has no such relationship.
The correct and complete simulation of the input to HP(P,P) is stuck in infinitely nested simulation and P(P) halts.

what is in H.
You say that H emulates P(P).
He is very studiously avoiding saying that! Obviously that's what
/should/ be simulated, because H(X,Y) should tell us about X(Y), but
then H(P,P) == 0 would be even more obviously wrong.
That's what the new unexplained mantra is all about. "The correct
simulation of the input to H(P,P)" can mean whatever PO wants it to
mean. For that reason I can't see why anyone thinks he's wrong about
it. It's not the halting problem, but it could only be wrong if he told >>> us it should do something it isn't doing.
It may be the case that I have misjudged the Sire of POOP all this
time. A feature of engineering software products today is not
implementing or testing to a specification. In fact there usually
isn't a spec anywhere
This is a 100% complete specification required to correctly determine
that the correctly emulated input to H(P,P) never reaches its "ret" instruction, thus never halts.
That you imply that it is not a complete specification proves that you
are incompetent or dishonest or both.

It is completely obvious that when H(P,P) correctly emulates its input
that it must emulate the first seven instructions of P. Because the
seventh instruction of P repeats this process we can know with complete certainty that the emulated P never reaches its final “ret” instruction, thus never halts.
in sight. That's how M$ as well as other software vendors avoid fixing
obvious mistakes. Since the spec doesn't exist, how can you know if
it's an error. I'm guessing that this style of development contributed
to PO not being able to hold a job (and all the projects we know about
were failures). It's the modern way and PO was there first. Let's all
raise our cups and shout hooray for Pete!
Jeff BarnettIn fact, according to you, H returns 0 (non-halting) because it
detects that
otherwise the nested simulations will go on forever. That's correct.
However,
in aborting the simulation, it makes it not true that the nested
simulations
will go on forever. That's the part you've failed to understand.
He understands that very well. I can provide all sorts of quotes to
attest to that. His plan is just to find some words that will keep the >>> conversation going.--
