Given any simply consistent formal theory F of the state complexity L(S) of finite binary sequences S as computed by 3-tape-symbol Turing machines, there exists a natural number L(F) such that L(S) > n is provable in F only if n < L(F). On the other hand, almost all finite binary sequences S satisfy L(S) < L(F). The proof resembles Berry's paradox, not the Epimenides nor Richard paradoxes.
