### You seem to be saying that cryonics works if and only if
"non-computable properties of brain" corresponds to an empty set.  I
would say you would need to differentiate between "non-computable and
relevant" and "non-computable and irrelevant". All we need for
cryonics to work in principle is the former to be an empty set.
