I have to ask, shouldn't it be that we are currently emulating what
exists in Platonia? I may be needlessly pedantic about language
usage, but I understand Platonia to be some concept of a thing's
Truest existence and all implementations of that in other
emulations/universes are local instances of the ideal form.

I am interested in how a function that maps states could provide the
perception of consciousness.

Is there a measure of dimension to Platonia? ( I know it's a concept-
if I don't ask, I won't know how you understand it)
