Why would Gods be supernatural? If comp is true, then when we create AI beings which we have power over to stop, start, and reprogram them as well as their perceived universes, who will we be to them other than Gods? Comp says that we have no way of knowing that has not happened yet and MWI (and Tegmark's Level 3 classification) demands that this is inevitable. In a scenario of infinite universes, how can any possibility be said to be supernatural. Our idea of quantum could simply be the virtual quantum of the simulation furnished to us by our programmers...who appear to us as arithmetic Gods because they wish to.
