  1. I'm sorry, but as far as I know humans and animals choose between equal values all the time. Watch your dog eat a bowl of dog food. Every pellet is for the purposes of the dog's hunger and even by the standard of the dog's "differentiating capacity" perfectly identical. Again the truth is "If all values are equal ALL choices are possible" As for a halting problem, in an artificial system that really would require bad programming (equal values to cause inaction causing lack of value), and from a biological evolutionary standpoint if ever such a mechanism appeared in the variation of species, it would almost certainly ensure extinction of that new species within a paltry few generations.
