The mind has the tools available to generate any experience it wants,
a lucid dream but one where you exercise complete control over everything
dream and thus can steer it wherever you want it to go.
Again that falls into inconsistency. WHO is exercising complete control??
I don't see what you find inconsistent about controlling our future experiences. You
decide to get make cup of coffee in the morning, and a few experiences later you are
drinking a cup of coffee. A super-intelligent machine with access to the appropriate
technology is just putting into practice self-determination to the extreme.
If a person is a sequence of exepriences, there is no "who".
Why isn't there a who? Isn't the who the person?
I'd say the brain - but that's because I don't believe a person is nothing but a sequence
