I agree with Jacques Mallah here, although undoubtedly for different
reasons :). Assuming a plenitude (eg Schmidhuber's or whatever), then
SASes will select a particular element of that plenitude. In my Occam
paper, I make the argument that this element should with greatest
measure (or liklihood in other words) be the Deutsch/Everett
Multiverse. Then the computational indeterminancy experienced in the

direct consequence of my "Projection" postulate of consciousness. The
Multiverse itself has no white rabbits of either the 1st or 3rd person
