The explanations I've heard so far are talking about something like
virtualized fire and a virtualized observer. I'm asking about how
would you emulate fire so that it burns like fire to all observers
that fire exists for. It needs to burn non-virtualized paper. Heat
homes, etc. How does arithmetic do that, and if it can't why is that
not directly applicable to consciousness?
