And you keep thinking there is such a thing as "THE" first person view, and that might be a OK approximation in a world without duplicating machines but not in a world that has them; there is only A first person view and one view is every bit as legitimate as another.

Similarly there is no such thing as "the" result of an observation of a quantum observable that is not already prepared in an eigenstate of that observable.
