There is a problem with this way of thinking in that it assumes

all things within our event horizon. You seem to be laboring under
the classical Newtonian view. To have a consistent and real idea of

It is things like that that are preventing COMP from being a
realistic explanatory theory. :-( I like COMP and UDA because I see
them as ideas that have errors can be corrected. This is not to say
that my own ideas are not error filled! We are all, including me,
finite and fallible.
That's essentially just saying 'No' to the doctor. Since the doctor
can only substitute stuff that is functionally equivalent at a
classical level you won't say 'Yes' if you think the quantum entangled
states of the stuff he's replacing are essential. Note however that
the replacement WILL have quantum entanglements; just not the same
ones. So you might say 'Yes', accepting that your consciousness will
be different in some way and yet still avoid being a p-zombie.
Please read what you just wrote and then what I wrote to ACW again
and think about it. Is there a difference between theory - as in what we
believe to be the case - and facts - that which *we* have no choice but
to agree is true, in your mind? I am telling you that experiential
evidence exists, and the mathematical theorems as well,that contradicts
all this nonsense about classical teleportation and it is as if I am
writing random strings of symbols. How about you do some research of
your own and stop regurgitating other people's words?
