This may be the crux of our misunderstanding. I think that an observer
can emerge out of the penitude without a UD. The maximally dumb UD is
the Null-UD. First person (relative or relativistic) experience is the
only one that matters. The world(s) he perceives is the portion of the
plenitude consistent with himself. (The body must be consistent with the

It may be possible that the need to invoke a UD originates from
classical 3rd person (objective or absolute) thinking in which several
separate physical worlds are simulated.
