There are branches where your mind gradually fades away to nothing. However, there are other branches where you start dementing then recover, as well as branches where you don't dement at all. It's the probability of being stuck in a branch where you incrementally dement but never actually reach total mindlessness that you have to worry about. > 2 Why is there any distinction between the RSSA and the ASSA.

The distribution of OM's is not required to be uniform under either the ASSA or the RSSA. The RSSA says that given you already exist, your successor OM will be sampled from a subset of OM's which have your present OM in their immediate subjective past. The distribution of OM's is due to the nature of whatever process gives rise to them, whether that is a single human brain in a single world cosmology, an ensemble of brains following the laws governing the multiverse, or the UD running in Platonia. -- Stathis Papaioannou
