Hi meekerdb I missed the thought experiment, but IMHO thought is an intentioned expression of some kind. Intentioned means that there is a living self to do the intentioning. Then one might think of thinking as a paste board on which one can paste and manipulate representations of the thoughts in the form of symbols, signs or icons.
This is what Peirce's semiotics is like.

What does physics (and multiple world theory) have to do with emulating human thinking ? Physics is deterministic, human thought is not. That's what Bruno's trying to explain with his thought-experiment.? "Comp" implies that if physics is deterministic then human thought is too, but "you" is indeterminate (as John Clark insists at length). If physics is not deterministic then neither is human thought, but it may be approximately so by statistics.
