As a side note, this is, imo, a discussion of terms: for me, for
instance, "I on this computer" is a superset of "I can read and write
every bit of this computer's ram (at any time)". For you, it appareantly
is not. One crucial point about discussing these things is that we
require not-technical reasoning, reasoning in terms we often do not
precisely define.
