Rather I was replying directly to Chaitin's comments on randomness. I see that he promotes irreduceabilty as randomness and it is this that I object. I think randomness is very much associated and defined with probability which I can't see as applicable when talking about uncomputability (since how can we know if a number is uncomputable unless we knew the uncomputable function that generates it - which would be to compute it).

Thanks for replying!

Warm regards, Harv
