I've lost track, is step 3 the trivial observation that sometimes we don't
we're going to do, or was that step 2?
It's not that we don't know what we are going to do, but we don't know what we are going
to experience (even if we could have complete information about our mind). It is
impossible to have complete information about one's environment because we exist within
an infinite number of them. Acquiring information from our environment is a process
that occurs over time. This information can differentiate some of the infinite
environments from others, but there will never be certainty regarding the stability or
continuity of the environment because some fraction of our infinite environments will
take highly divergent paths. In the next second you could find yourself a trillion
light-years from your current location if someone there happened to recreated you in
your current form.
Or find 'yourself' a Boltzmann brain.
