A set X of nonnegative integers is computably enumerable (c.e.), also called recursively enumerable (r.e.), if there is a computable method to list its elements. Let E denote the structure of the computably enumerable sets under inclusion, E = (fW e g e2! ; `). We previously exhibited a first order Edefinable property Q(X) such that Q(X) guarantees that X is not Turing complete (i.e., does not code complete information about c.e. sets). Here we show first that Q(X) implies that X has a certain "slowness " property whereby the elements must enter X slowly (under a certain precise complexity measure of speed of computation) even though X may have high information content. Second we prove that every X with this slowness property is computable in some member of any nontrivial orbit, namely for any noncomputable A 2 E there exists B in the orbit of A such that X T B under relative Turing computability ( T ). We produce B using the \Delta 0 3 automorphism method we introduced earli...

A set A ` ! is computably enumerable (c.e.), also called recursively enumerable, (r.e.), or simply enumerable, if there is a computable algorithm to list its members. Let E denote the structure of the c.e. sets under inclusion. Starting with Post [1944] there has been much interest in relating the denable (especially Edenable) properties of a c.e. set A to its iinformation contentj, namely its Turing degree, deg(A), under T , the usual Turing reducibility. [Turing 1939]. Recently, Harrington and Soare answered a question arising from Post's program by constructing a nonemptly Edenable property Q(A) which guarantees that A is incomplete (A !T K). The property Q(A) is of the form (9C)[A ae m C & Q \Gamma (A; C)], where A ae m C abbreviates that iA is a major subset of Cj, and Q \Gamma (A; C) contains the main ingredient for incompleteness. A dynamic property P (A), such as prompt simplicity, is one which is dened by considering how fast elements elements enter A relat...
