Why would Gods be supernatural? If comp is true, then when we create
AI beings over which we will have power to stop, start, and reprogram
their minds as well as their perceived universes, who will we be to
them other than Gods? Computationalism 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 some universes.
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.
