If mind is a computation, we can copy it. Computation is numbers to numbers in finite "time" and deterministic rules. I've put "time" in quotes because time can be a rule and not something inherent to computation. Computation can only diverges if the computation is not the same and/or input is not the same. Computation is a deterministic thing not something you could play with.
