​OK, but then how do you figure
mind does not come out of the brain

The conscious mind does not. The brain only change the relative probability of manifestation. But of course we need the FPI for that.

This seems to me to be the matheological version of Boltzmann's brains.  If consciousness is instantiated by threads in the UD, then it seems that almost all consciousness would be independent of brains.  After all, computing the brain would take a lot more UD steps than just computing the conscious sentences.
