It's just consequence of the comp hyp. actually
"the invariance lemma": the fact that from a first
person perspective is not possible to be aware of "computational
substitutions, reconstitution delays, realness/virtualness
distinctions, or even realness/arithmeticalness distinctions, etc.
+ realism on the relation between positive integers, and
realism on what immaterial machine (programs) can prove
about themselves and their most probable local neighborhood.
I agree that non collapse form of QM "confirms" comp-immortality
like prospects.
