Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry : 27

Re: Gil KalaiAvi Wigderson : “Integrating Computational Modeling, Algorithms, and Complexity into Theories of Nature Marks a New Scientific Revolution!”

I took a look at Avi’s paper “On the Nature of the Theory of Computation” (OtNotToC).  There is naturally a good dose of TOC but little on the type of World-Objective Contact (WOC) it takes to connect with empirical science.  Just on that sample it reminds me of projects like Wolfram’s “New Kind Of Science”.  They all do a good job of convincing us to use computational media as virtual laboratories for conducting experimental mathematics, but they leave us hanging when it comes to analyzing the relation between what goes on inside the box of computation and the natural world outside the box.
