Nearly all scientists would agree that the material identity is not
important to continuity of consciousness. Therefore any time the
appropriate instantiation arises, consciousness can continue. In an
infinitely large and varied reality (Platonism, QM, infinite hubble
volume, or eternal inflation), our patterns continually reappear.
That would imply that copies of one's soul exist. But John defined
souls as being impossible to copy.
I disagree, if we bet on comp there is only one soul, just
infinitely many 'versions' or 'projections' of it. Consciousness is the
1p associated with the local version, IMHO, unless we allow for 1p that
contain experiences that are mutually contradictory.
