I stopped a long time ago to read the 'transported' versions for one reason:
if it is REALLY (only) a transport, it does not make a difference whether "you" will

into a multiple existence then - my problem is - what happens to the 'experience' of
self1 while you consider yourself at self2 location? the self-s inadvertently diverge so
you cannot be both (or more).
In such case the 'pronoun' sindrom is valid. "YOU" are the "ONE" passing several
locations - accumulating continual experience upon yourself (the 1) and if you happen to
return to a former one, it will not be "YOU".
I think the conclusion is that there is no "you" in the sense of unique. It's like
talking about "the" dollar coin. If it's duplicated or multiplied it's not unique and
"you" is ambiguous - which is what John Clark complains about.
