Once upon a time there was a little wave, thinking itself conscious and a 
person, screaming (indeed) with horror as it sees its fate is to be 
annilated by crashing onto the rocks.
Fortunately the little wave was reading the everything list and learn, 
that some Everett & Co. discover there were actualy an infinity of oceans 
and that thanks to some tunneling effect she will survive crashing the 
rocks in some of theses oceans.
She will survive ! With lots of his favorite memories (of love and 
chocolate for instance).

... And now, you (the same you who send a memorable mail on immortality 
through MWI), ask the little wave to be happy of the permanence of her 
apparent stuffy ocean ?!?!?

... Well, in any case, if "the" ocean is "conscious", I still don't see 
why he should not be considered as a (kind of) person.
