I don't think that we can assume that a Turing emulation of us is actually
"us". To the contrary, a Turing emulation of geometry is not geometry. A
Turing emulation of water can be the same as a Turing emulation of water in
another Turing emulated virtual world, but no emulated drop of Turing water
can ever be a genuine drop of water within the world that we actually live
in. It doesn't matter that 17 is still prime when you are dying of
