Infinite loop 2

Recursion 12.3 | Paradox 6 | Life as a recursion, 3

Paradox is due to the mixing of para-level (meta-level) and original level.

The mixing of levels creates a causal/reasoning loop, resulting an infinite long chain.

In short, infinite loop is due to mixing levels.

If there is no progress or no terminating condition, a loop cannot stop.

With progress (change of some values of some variables), each iteration is different. In this sense, each iteration is at a different level.

Without progress, all iterations are at the same level, creating a mixing-level problem, aka “a paradox”.

Level 1: Life is a repetition.  /* an infinite loop */

Level 2: Life is an iteration.

Level 3: Life is a recursion.
