The UDA is a comparatively short program, and provably contains the program that is identical to your mind.

To be more precise (I hope) - assuming that thoughts, experiences etc are a form of computation at some level, the output (or trace) of the UDA, which I seem to recall is designated UDA*, will eventually generate those thoughts, experiences etc. Though if run on a PC it would probably take a few googol years to do so (and require many hubble volumes of storage space too, I imagine).

However, arithmetical realism assumes that the trace of the UDA already exists timelessly.


Of the UD. UD is the program doing the universal dovetailing.

UDA is for the 8 step argument showing that if we are machine, physics is a brnach of machine's theology, itself a branch of arithmetic or computer science.

Similarly, all of the known laws of physics could fit on a couple sheets of paper. QM seems to suggest that all possible solutions to certain equations exist, and so there is no need to specify the initial conditions of the universe (which would require much more information to describe than your brain).

This sounds like the "Theory of Nothing" again.....?
