I wanted to ask about cloning of beings (IUOCs, not VR beings like humans in PMR, real fundamental consciousness).
In the process I searched for previous posts and that opened more questions. I will post the references at the bottom.
1. From what I found, you were saying that consciousness can be copied. You mentioned also the possibility that a being can be restored if deleted. Do you know if this actually was done? Can AUM make a copy of Tom Campbell's IUOC at a certaing delta-t and save it for a possible backup or to make a new experiment by placing the new copy in a different VR?
2. I found that you said that "thoughts" and "feelings" are also fundamental (reference below). If that is so, how is TBC structured? I assume TBC has the same structure or substance (consciousness). How can TBC model a VR from just "thoughts" and "feelings"? TBC has to use some logic, or structured organization, even though different from PMR, but something is there and some scientists in NPMR or above layer/s should be able to analyze and come up with something from studying it. (See below when you answered a question to Jer).
3. If according to MBT we have a digital nature, why can't that digital nature be studied (at least by highly evolved super intelligent beings)? From the answers I found (reference below), it looks to me that some "magic" is replacing the "digital nature".
References from previous posts:
Jer: "Do you think there will come a time when a sufficiently evolved being could analyze and transmit a simple enough consciousness unit, utilizing the language of the consciousness unit itself, so as to have exact copy, a small part of consciousness that can be moved from the first category of unknowns to the second category of knowns?"
Tom: "Yes, no doubt exact copies can be made of any given content, but the value, significance, and meaning of that content must be interpreted. However, there would be little point in doing so since the original is already available to everything that exists that is capable of generating an interpretation of it. The two categories you describe do not exist in consciousness as they do in PMR. Bottom line: The code underlying consciousness is an unnecessary concept and thus probably does not exist. In PMR the code is necessary because of needing to abide by the rule-set defining allowable energetic and spatial interactions between entities."
Tom (in an anwer to first question of Jer on same post): "Thoughts and feelings are fundamental to consciousness and even at the most basic level must be individually interpreted."

Another related post from Tom:
"Also in MBT you will find reference to an individuated unit of consciousness being deleted in extremely rare cases. AUM is an intelligent (purposeful) evolving real system making real choices to optimize that evolution, not a fixed rule-set or process of infinite perfection."
