Subject: Turing Tomb is interactive

To Mike Perry:

Regarding your discussions with Ettinger... I think what hasn't gotten
across is that the Turing tomb not only simulates the being in question,
but also its surroundings, either sufficiently distant surroundings or the
entire universe as required.  This includes the beings with which it is to
interact.  So when another being talks to the Tomb, the Tomb is expecting
this and replies appropriately, giving a perfect display of interactivity.
