However, on reflection, this is not what one should deduce from the

function, for example).


But then it seems one needs the physical, or at least the subconscious. If one conceives a "subjective moment" as just what one is conscious of in "a moment" it doesn't encode very much of the past. And in the digital simulation paradigm the computational state doesn't encode any of it. So I think each conscious "moment" must have considerable extent in (physical) time so as to overlap and provide continuity. Of course physical time need not correspond in any simple way to computational steps.
