I have before stated my long-held opinions on this, namely that it's best to regard one's duplicates as self. As a corollary, the "you" that ends up in one place is "100% you" and so is the other.
Consider this alternative experiment: we reveal to you that every minute of the last two years you have had one thousand duplicates created in fake rooms, streets, passage ways, or in bed, wherever you happen to be. At random, 999 are chosen to be immediately destroyed, with only the 1 at the end of each minute carrying on. Oh, yes, you might be very philosophically upset. But it would end up making no real difference to you. You would find that you, as always, have more important things to worry about, and life would go on normally. No important difference exists between one person to whom this is happening, and his neighbor to whom it is not. They both feel similarly, and by hypothesis lead very similar lives. For this reason, our concepts and language must adapt to reality, not try to make reality adapt to them.
