Subject: Differences over what you are and what is

At least the various postings have made it clear that some people feel very
strongly that you are atoms not bits (stating it very roughly, of course),
while others of us are  inclined to the opposite point of view. And probably
neither side will be able to do much to covince the other. And in any case,
time will have to tell who is right. So I'm hoping I can bow out of this
discussion very soon without leaving anyone feeling shortchanged (if anyone
would be so inclined :-). Anyone who wants to can correspond privately. I'm
also intrigued about Yvan Bozzonetti's arguments against many-worlds, but
very skeptical too. Get in touch with David Deutsch, Yvan, if you think you
have something--get an interpreter to make sure you are understood. (Or
choose some other route of your own to get your efforts known and/or compare
notes with the scientific establishment.) On the other hand, I don't mean to
disparage the free expression of ideas here, even if they run in all sorts
of directions. Overall, it makes us stronger.
