I'm fine up to here.

I am aware of Step 7: but I don't agree that all computations need
correspond to a continuation of an OM.
You agree that some "continuations" can actually be a non-continuation,
don't you? For instance, in Quantum suicide, there are versions of you
which die (visibly for other observers) - so there are "continuations"
of your state which code your termination.
I do not see following from UDA that all computational continuations
need correspond to OMs. For instance, in step 1 we say "yes doctor", but
we don't say yes to every doctor, for instance to the one arriving with
some cogwheels -> "no doctor" ;-)
So, what I am saying is that maybe in some cases (cul de sac) _all_
(2^aleph_zero) continuations actually code for termination (=the
teleport fails completely, but annihilation unfortunately succeeds).
How can you exclude that? Are you assuming that _every_ computation is
conscious qua computation? (then I would agree -> QI; but I don't share
that assumption, and I don't see it anywhere in UDA)
