It is not just ignorance, it is true indeterminacy. Even if you have
all the information you cannot know which observation you will make
To add to Bruno's and Stathis's point, first person indeterminacy,
even when the details of the experiment are known, is an essential
piece of the Sleeping Beauty Problem:
This is indeed a beautiful problem, but I am not sure I see the
relationship with first person indeterminacy, which involves explicit
copy and duplication of the body of a person, at its correct
Sleeping Beauty is continually duplicated at a succession of times; she
just doesn't know which one she is when the question is asked.
