Makes not sense at all. If people are just sequences of experiences
with the physical as secondary) then there is no sense in asking who owns
The same experience can be part of different sequences. E.g. (1, 6, 7, 19, 11) and (2,
3, 14, 19, 23) are two different sets, or sequences, (analogous to two different persons
by your definition), but they both contain the same number 19 (the same experience).
Thus the experience belongs can be said to be "owned" or "had" by more than one person.
So asking who owns an experience is equivalent to identifying the possible chains of
experience that contain a given experience. Let me know if this still makes no sense.
That's OK. But earlier you asked "who rightfully owned and experience", implying that
there was a unique owner of any given experience - which might be true, but is
incompatible with the idea of experiences as fundamental.
There are two minds in this case: There is the Jupiter brain's mind, and
Brent Meeker's mind. The Jupiter brain might choose to simulate all of
thus it will instantiate yours, mind, and all earthlings' brains.
But now you're invoking brains to distinguish which mind is which. I'm
theory is incoherent.
It is unfortunate that the term "Jupiter Brain" contains the word "brain" in it, but
treat the above cases of "Jupiter brain" as simply a label for something with
unfathomable computational resources and intelligence, the word "brain" is not relevant
to this discussion.
To use the sets of numbers analogy, a Jupiter brain that experiences other perspectives
is like a very large set of experiences.
If it's simply a set of experiences, then it can't "choose to simulate"

mind of the Jupiter brain will not be able to remember what it is like to
Meeker without creating some kind of bridge to make Brent's memories and
experiences accessible to that mind.
Brent Meeker is always an owner of Brent Meeker's experiences, but there
other entities who can rightfully be said to be owners of those
virtue of having memory of having been Brent Meeker, for example.
But that is beside the point, even if this brain was not

that it experiences one lifetime after, this activity creates a

Why do experiences need some outside agent, "this brain" to integrate them?
They only need to be integrated if you want the experience to belong to
I thought the idea was that experiences formed a chain by their

Who then are the true owners of the experience? When the experience ends
playback, you don't know which of the thousands of viewers you will then
yourself to be.
No, sensory immersion is not the same as experience immersion. Because of
memories and structure, experiences will be uniquely mine even though the
input is shared.
Imagine the downlaoded experiences encode your memories too, and when viewed restrict
the memories of the viewer to those of the uploader.
But then, relative to me, they would be no different than Jason Resch having the
experiences. Brent Meeker wouldn't be having them at all.
