From the third person perspective, the annihilation of the 10^100
could be seen as 10^100 dead ends. (In fact, when I originally
proposed this experiment, Hal Finney thought it represented the
ultimate in mass murder.) If I were one of the 10^100, however, I
wouldn't be worried in the slightest about the prospect of dying,
because as long as at least one copy survives, this guarantees that I
survive. This may go again intuition, but if you give up the notion of
an immaterial soul, there is no reason why there should be a one to
one relationship between earlier and later versions of a person.
OK. But from this I deduce that we were agreeing. Eventually this means
we don't take the dead ends into account when computing probabilities
for future extensions of oneself.
