Two points: I am pointing out that the "non-interactional" idea of computation and any form of monism will fail to account for the "necessity" of 1st person viewpoints.
You know that the "necessity" of 1st person viewpoints is what I consider the most easily explained (through the translation of the Theaetetus in arithmetic or in any language of a lobian machine).
You refer to paper as hard and technical as my thesis. You should explain why you still believe the 1 person is dismissed in comp or any monism.
Also, Pratt seems to me monist, and its mathematical dualism does not address the main question in philosphy of mind/cognitive science. Its paper is interesting but could hardly be refer as an authority on those question at this stage.
