Consider the quantum suicide experiment, or the Shrodinger's cat experiment from the

But that's just a semantic trick. The first-person perspective consciousness can still
be finite. Just because "the end" isn't part of the experience, it doesn't follow that
the sequence of experiences continues indefinitely. I've had my consciousness
interrupted. There was no mathematical/logical necessity that it resume.
Of course. But if you assume either QM, or comp, there are.
Comp maybe. QM doesn't require that consciousness continue.
