Kaellum Eridani (kaellum-eridani)
What if the agent which is a quantum mechanical intelligence CAN temporarily tunnel out of the environment long enough to make certain key observations/measurements. It could be both in the embedded environment AND out at the same time as a hyper wavefunction or in the form of its own pilot wave? Thinking as a human is a quantum mechanical process to a degree. You cannot change a system from within it is a psychological norm, however if the agent is quantum mechanical in nature then it is likely neither particle nor wave but something undeterminable by other agents. The agent might be in quantum flux indefinately n'est pas? Hence incompleteness theorem in both physics and mathematics.
