Afterwards both diaries can be shown to anyone who is interested proving that there was no indeterminacy and the prediction is confirmed to be completely correct.

There are incompatible from the "1-pov" ONLY if you assume there can be only one Bruno Marchal

"1-pov" means "1-pov" from the 1-pov view. There is only one. Even if I am duplicated into 10^100, all of them will have a unique pov. The probability question bears on those unique pov (from their unique pov view).

and there is no logical reason for making that assumption, therefore I at this "1-pov" will not do so.

You keep repeating that over and over like a mantra, but there is a possibility it is you that is confused.

Yes, and there is rock solid proof that is exactly precisely what was predicted to happen,
```

Correct, but the question is on the content of the 1-pov. And the theory predict that those content will be exlcuive and non compatible, as you write correctly above.
```

```
if you doubt this just look and see what was written in the diary before the experiment started, it's right there clear as a bell in black and white. So where is this spectral "first person indeterminacy" you keep talking about?
```
```
The incompatible experience "I feel to be in M" and "I feel to be in W". After the experience we can interview the two copies, and they will confirm it.
```

Exactly.

WHAT?? He could have also written in his diary "the Bruno Marchal who calls himself "I" and sees Washington will not be the Bruno Marchal who calls himself "I" who does NOT see Washington". He could have added that to his official prediction, but I think writing something so thunderously obvious would be a waste of ink.
```

No. It helps to understand that from the 1-pov, the experience was not predictible. Your move consists in looking all the time from the 3-pov on the 1-pov, but the question bears on the 1-pov from the 1-pov. It is simoilar as what happens when you look at up+down in an {up, down} analyser. QM predicts you will be in the superposition state, but comp explain you will feel only one branch.
