That is a very difficult and tremendously interesting question. The
arithmetical notion of knowledge and observation can only scratch the
surface here. But an answer to that question is not needed to
understand that we have to derive physics from comp, if comp is true.
It is needed to extract the physics, and to solve the mind-body
problem, that's for sure. But let me insist: you don't need to solve
this to understand the comp *necessity* of reducing the mind body
problem to to the body problem in computer science.



I am very interested in this question as it directly relates to my questions about how interactions between multiple and separable 1- p. I continue to be confused by this term "body problem in computer science". Could you discuss it in some greater detail?

The body problem and the white rabbit problem are variant of the
general problem of explaining the belief in a physical universe from
numbers and computer science, without the assumption that there is a
primary physical reality (or that there is no primary physical
reality). The UD Argument is supposed to justify this in detail. (And
AUDA justifies the non boolean and quantum nature of the logic of what
is observable by asking a 'Löbian number' her opinion on the matter
(no pun intended).


OK, sure, but that about considerations of one 'Löbian number' communicating with another? That is what my questions are about.

DM + ~solipsism can be shown to entail the coherent multiplication of shared computations, that is first person plural shared dreams. To show that DM entails ~solipsism by itself, you have to solve the body problem first. The other minds problem should be easily soluble from the solution to the body problem, and the key notion is interaction. But interaction is still problematical even in quantum logic, and a fortiori in the arithmetical logic. I think you need the "degenerate" material hypostases: the 'B^n p & D^m p' nuances. With m > n, you get arithmetical quantum logics, and you almost get the tensor needed for the interactions. Unfortunately those tensors don't behave so well. Those tensors arise from a Temperley-Lieb like structure related to the arithmetical modal projection operators (B^n p & D^m p). This, if it works, could explain how space arise from numbers, and why the dynamic is governed by a unitary transformation. Space seems to be defined only by the conditions of making multi-observers interaction possible. Just remember that we have to extract this from arithmetical self- reference only, in a very special particular way, so that we don't loose the qualia in the process. Indeed the qualia, including the quanta, are provided by the intensional variant of the Solovay G/G* splitting.
