No problem. UDA shows the equivalent propositions: (MAT is weak materialism: the

NOT MAT or NOT COMP
I keep COMP as a working hypothesis, as I have no clue what really MAT means or
explains, and we don't find a contradiction, just a weirdness close to quantum Everett.
But more accurately, we have not yet found a contradiction. There may be a contradiction
with empirical observation, but COMP has not made many definite predictions that could be
contradicted. That's why I brought up the location of consciousness. Empirically
consciousness is associated with a center body (an essential point of the duplication
experiment), yet so far as I can see COMP would predict that a consciousness should have
no particular location and not reason to be associated with a particular body.
