Hi John

For example, we can conceive of a consciousness generated by a computer
operating in a time share mode where the time share occur every thousand
years. The important thing is that there should be a logical flow in the
computation, and it really does not matter what is the time scale, the
sampling, in which dimension you operate or the level of computation.
(you could be operating across several levels) The only thing that
matters is that each point of the computation be connected to the next
one by a valid logical link, as in a network. This logical network in
fact frees you from having to specify a dimension such as time or a
level of computation. The logical connections (or consistent histories
as Bruno calls them) in the network are in fact emergent according to
the Anthropic principle. The logical links (or consistencies) exist
because you are there to observe them. Just as a Rorschach test . You
are making the links as you go along.
