If I died I wouldn't be around to know or care, but I would care in
anticipation of dying, since it would radically alter my future
experiences by eliminating them. On the other hand, 1->1 or many->1
copying would leave my future experiences the same as if the
teleportation hadn't occurred. You might say that this is an illusion
since the original me will actually be dead but the same illusion
occurs in ordinary life, and it is the circumstances under which the
illusion is preserved that interests me when I think about survival.
