Also single mind can be regarded as collection of parts interacting with each other. If each part can be regarded as its information content, each physical implementation ties together instantiations of parts. If single mind can be implemented by multiple implementations, each of these implementations also implements all parts of mind, so mind can be composed of different parts, where each of the parts is implemented in different universe. So, brain can be half- p-zombie and half-conscious.
