In the multiverse, only other people end up in dead ends. Although from a
third person perspective every entity in the multiverse could be said to
exist only transiently because at every point of an entity's history we can
say that there sprouts a dead end branch of zero extent, from a first person
perspective, these branches cannot by definition ever be experienced.

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.
From the third person perspective, the annihilation of the 10^100 copies
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.
