Not exactly. Only sufficiently accurately to maintain your consciousness.If the copy is not exact then functional equivalence is not exact either and this isfatal for the model.

Then you should mourn the Stephen P. King of and hour ago. He's been fatally changed.

This is not qubits that are involved... The point here is that this comp model assumethat Reality is, at is ground level, classical.It doesn't assume that. A fully quantum computation can be performed on a classical,i.e. Turing, computer. Bruno would just say it just takes a lower level of substitution.Yes, a classical computer can emulate a finite quantum computation given sufficientresources. This is not the same thing as the EPR effect that I am considering. The ideathat I am considering is more like this:Consider the visible physical universe. We know from observation that not only is itopen on one end and that it's expansion is accelerating. People want to put this off onsome "Dark Energy". I think that it is something else, driving it. Consider a classicalcomputer that needs to emulate a quantum computation. It has to have even increasingresources to keep up with the QC if the QC is modeling an expanding universe. It we takeBruno's AR literally, where are these resources coming from?

`They are computations. They exist in Platonia. He's trying to explain matter, so he can't`

`very well assume material resources. The world is made out of arithmetic, an infinite`

`resource.`

Let's turn the tables and make Reality Quantum in its essence. The classicalcomputation may just be something that the QC is running.

There's not difference as computations.

What is most interesting is that the QC can run an arbitrary number of classicalcomputations, all at the same time. The CC can only barely compute the emulation of asingle QC.

`You are talking about QC and CC as though they were material computers with finite`

`resources. Once you've assumed material resources you've lost any non-circular`

`possibility of explaining them.`

What if we have an infinite and eternal QC running infinitely many finite CCs and eachof these CC's is trying to emulate a single QC. Map this idea out and look at the niceself-referential loop that this defines!
