That is what is usually understood, but there is no logical reason why 
the relationship between the physical and the mental cannot be 
one->many, in much the same way as a written message can have 
several meanings depending on its interpretation. Whatever physical 
supervenience is, it isn't like the usual causal relationships between 
objects.
