The same reasoning you see here. That the brain is a finite physical
system which could be modeled or reproduced just like any other
physical system. That decisions we make are essentially made for us by
how the conditions are presented to us. That qualia is a
representational system for neurological feedback. All of those things
are true in a sense, until you try to imagine making a copy of the
universe based on that alone. Not only would such a universe not have
any possibility for awareness or participation, but neither are they
conceivable in any universe which does not place them as primitive.
There is no functional reason for experience to exist, however there
is an experiential reason for function to exist.
