This is a too poor definition of substrate. Such
definition obliterates the apparent (at least) distinction
we make between an immaterial mathematical beeing like
PI or a Hilbert Space, and concrete single substancial
beeing like my computer screen here, and now.
We must explain how *in the math* such distinction
appears, and remains (apparently) stable.

Independently of finding the computation the
human brain does, the DU will do it infinitely often.
How will then you attach consciousness to a single
brain, and what is that brain made of ?
