When you aren't thinking about what your mother looks like, she could look like anyone, because your moment of awareness at that point in time is consistent with existence in all those possible universes where she is a different person.

Why is it that even though Tegmark wrote a paper showing it, nobody wants to admit that the brain is a classical system. Unless you are taking Craig's dualist view that thought and memory are independent of your brain, your memory as instantiated in your brain already corresponded to who your mother is and to most of the rest of your history - excepting those instances where some quantum event was amplified sufficiently to create a superposition in your experience.
