    But I am not defined  by having exactly the same experience at
    all times. I am defined by a having a coherent set of memories,
    but (in a mathematical multiverse) a coherent set of memories up until
    time T can be stitched
    onto surreal experiences at time T+1. (which sort of happens
    in dreams anyway). I can think to myself "Why am I, a person
    who was born in such-and-such a place and went to school in such-and-
    such a place
    and who has every reason to believe there are no talking giant white
    rabbits now suddenly seeing  a WR".

You can up until you are not you anymore... ie: until you can say I'm am Peter Jones and you know it.

So all *your* experiences are filtered amongs only the Peter Jones experiences.

    In a MMV, there have to be many more me's with incoherent future
    following on from my current memories, that there are me's with
    future experiences.

That's my point, COMP does not add more white rabbits from this pov.

My point is ***when you are asking why am I in this *coherent* moments is because you are effectively in that coherent moments... you would'nt ask that if you were in incoherent moments, so that question filters out any incoherent moments. This restrict the observer class to the only observers able to ask it.***

He couldn't ask it in a world where the physics was incoherent. But he could certainly see apparitions of white rabbits etc as in a dream and still ask.
