I am not sure that the measure problem can be so easily
abandoned/ignored.  Assuming every Observer Moment had has an equal
measure, then the random/white-noise filled OMs should vastly
outnumber the ordered and sensible OMs.  Though I ever only have one
OM to go by, the fact I was able to maintain a
non-random/non-white-noise filled OMs long enough to compose this post
should serve as some level of evidence that all OMs are not weighted
equally.

Bruno has suggested that computationalism is a candidate for answering
the measure problem in a testable way.  However there may be other
ways to answer it by considering platonic objects, for example
counting the umber of paths to a state, that is how often it reappears
as a substructure of other platonic objects, etc.  Whether or not this
is testable is another question, but whether the ultimate explanation
of consciousness is computation or information, I feel that measure is
important.
