That remains to be proved or argued for. Both from the quantum
multiverse and from comp we are differentiating into a continuum,
so that indeed it is hard not to take Goodwin's "head cutted off" 2
survival into consideration. In principle we could perhaps computationally
or quantum mechanically bactrack in case we could destroy ourselves with
probability near one. To erase something in a (perhaps) immaterial realm
can be very difficult though.

I wish y're right. Perhaps you are. It is not so obvious for me,
(neither from QM nor a fortiori from the little part of QM which
comes from comp). The nature of the survival could also depend
on the way you (or your histories) structure your memory. To compute
that is to sum on consistent but very near inconsistent structures.
