I have also a problem with the expression "staying in the same
branche": you always split or differentiate on 2^aleph_0 branches. Do
you mean branches looking the same from the first person perspective?
I agree that we split every moments, but we can define a branch by an
set of events that construct a complete first person perspective. That
it follows that every singular first person is always in one and only
branch... But that means also asking in which branch am I is
ask which individual am I (amongst semblable but differentiated 1st
This question is disturbing in the sense that we somehow recognize
"I" (in other branches) as self (example : "you always split or
differentiate" who is the you ? who/what is splitting ?).
That is why it makes things simpler to keep in mind the difference
between the first person self and the thrid person self. Only the third
person self is duplicated. Then, because we assume comp, or because we
are just polite, we can say that a first person has been
duplicated---because we attribute a mind to the two reconstituted
person. Now from the point of view of the duplicated persons, each of
their own first person has not been duplicated at all. The first person
is not duplicable from her first person point of view.
Hope I am clear enough ...
