We need to select it by the measure on the first personexperiences, and this gives the first coherent explanation of bothconsciousness and matter appearance, where physicists just do notaddress this question since a long time.

`Not just "accept arithmetic", but also to suppose that all possible`

`computations exist via a UD.`

My work says nothing about physics, but it shows that with DigitalMechanism _in *Metaphysics_*, physicalism does not work.Bruno
