I don't think it makes sense to ask if a program per se can be
Only a relative running program can have a consciousness attributed to
it. (and then by UDA that consciousness will be associated to an
infinity of sufficiently similar running programs occuring in the UD
Now Peter asks for a running program relatively to a real universe.
Then I say that the UDA shows that the "real universe" is a red herring.
All what is needed is a running program relatively to an infinity of
(mathematical) universal number.
I recall that a number u is universal with respect to addition and
multiplication (or any ontic theories in which you define the partial
recursive functions) when Fu(x,y) = Fx(y) for all x and y. The Fi being
defined in the ontic theory.
