You might be disturbed by the fact that in experience 2, the "original" remains the

This, in my opinion, illustrates again that we have to use RSSA instead of ASSA.
Suppose the original goes to Mars and the copy stays behind. Then the probability the
original went to Mars is 1.
The question is asked before the guy enter in the box. This is a "step 5" case. The
probability to feel to stay the original is 1/2.
Everybody feels they are the original. The question before he enters the box is, "Will
you find yourself on Mars?" To which he could reply, "What does 'you' refer to?"
