nom the puppet: "that's where mind uploading and experience sharing come in"

the concept of mind uploading is a tough one, not to mention that we do not as of yet have a science that can accurately understand what it is that can or should be uploaded if and when such technology will be feasible and eventually available. but having said that I think that an interactionist approach is or may not be the best solution even if we did attain such a technology as mind uploading. those pesky "metaphysical leftovers" as you call them are indeed the most difficult issue to resolve. the question as I see it is not one of infinite computation capability but the coherence of one's identity in a universe in which all enmeshes simultaneously.
