For the UMPTEENTH TIME!!!!

Use a Universal Turing Machine to generate POWERSET(N)
Every <algorithm, input> pair that terminates populates a
value into P(N).

INPUT 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ...
===========================================
TM1 H L H H H L L L L L ...
TM2 H H H H H H H H H H ...
TM3 H L L L L L L L L L ...
TM4 H H H H H H H H H H ...
...

TM1(1) Halts => 1 e POWERSET_1
TM1(2) Loops => 2 !e POWERSET_1
TM1(3) Halts => 3 e POWERSET_1

TM2(1) Halts => 1 e POWERSET_2
TM2(2) Halts => 2 e POWERSET_2
TM2(3) Halts => 3 e POWERSET_2
...

POWERSET(N) = { {1,3,...} {1,2,3...} ... }


ANYBODY READING YET!!!!

INPUT 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ...
===========================================
TM1 | H L H | H H L L L L L ...
TM2 | H H H | H H H H H H H ...

SEE WHERE THOSE SETS CAME FROM???? ANYONE??? BUELLER???

IF IT HALTS THEN THE INPUT VALUE
IS AN ELEMENT OF THAT SUBSET OF N

FFS! P(N)

You can't fng read Virgil!
