Only if they believe they are *in* the multiverse.

If they are Platonists, they might believe that Plato's heaven
exists and contains abstract counterparts of everything existing
concretely on "Earth", and much more besides. But as
they need not believe that an abstract algorithm -- even their
own abstract counterpart in Heaven -- is conscious. As standard
Platonists, they believe *they* are in Earth.
