I agree the UD is not conscious, even if it generates what is conscious.
And I agree this applies also to the multiverse or any big whole or big
one ...
Now, I would not say anything without inputs is unconscious. This *is*
a definitional nuance, indeed, but it is useful for not having to
introduce new vocabulary for talking about the "dreaming brains" (which
has no relevant inputs).
