OK. My point is that if we assume computationalism it is necessarily so, and
constructively so, so making that hypothesis testable.
We have the logical entaiment:
Arithmetic -> computations -> consciousness -> sharable dreams -> physical
reality/matter -> human biology -> human consciousness.
It is a generalization of "natural selection" operating from arithmetical truth, and in
which the physical reality is itself the result of a self-selection events (the global
first person indeterminacy).
This generalizes both Darwin and Everett, somehow.
But you stop one step too soon.
Arithmetic -> computations -> consciousness -> sharable dreams -> physical reality/matter
-> human biology -> human consciousness -> arithmetic.
That there is something fundamental is unscientific dogma.
