I agree with this, in the sense that this follows also from computationalism, and thus
3p-duplicability at some level.
An 1p-experience is not duplicable, as it is the unique experience of a unique being. It
can still be duplicated relatively to some observer, but not relatively to the
experiencer himself. Again what you say concur with comp, making astonishing why you are
using those points against the possibility of 3p-duplication, which is so much well
illustrated by nature, as life is constant self-body change and duplication (as Stathis
To sum up: with comp, we are 3p-duplicable; the 1p, as attributed by a 3p-person, is
relatively duplicable. The 1p, seen from the 1p view, is not duplicable. Like in Everett
QM, the 1p can't feel the split in any way.
That seems to imply that the 1p view is nothing but a stream of experiences and apart from
that sequence of experiences there is no 'person'.
