      Can behavioral problems such as addictions, OCD, depression and anxiety be understood in the light of Godel’s incompleteness and Turing’s halting problems, and then perhaps then lead to a solution through the abilities of consciousness?

      Are these really behavioral problems or emotional problems? Godel’s theorem is about the fact that language operates in more than one mode (individual vs. universal, thing vs. activity), but this part of language pertains to cogniton rather than emotion. The connection between these two is tangential at best. To deal with emotional issues, one has to overcome the inner sense of loneliness and insecurity. Even knowing that one is eternal is not enough, although it goes some ways in conquering fear. Am I eternally alone? That can be a very depressing thought. Ultimately, the answer to emotional issues is emotional satisfaction at a spiritual level.
