In fact, I believe that in your example "Eric the copy" would probably agree that he is a copy after seing evidence of that, and would live with his life without claiming the rights of the original. That would make him very unhappy and confused, of course, and then "Eric the original" would pity him and help
him as he would help a twin brother.

In reality the molecules in your brain are constantly being recycled--if you believe that the changes that make up memories happen at the synapses, the article at suggests all the molecules at the synapses are replaced in only 24 hours or so, and also that the entire brain is probably replaced "every other month" or so. So do you think the Eric Cavalcanti of six months ago is dead, and that your memories of having been him are false?
