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 argues convincingly).
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
Not at all. Both the "Bp & p", and the UDA-personal-diary definitions

Globally, we might become the same person, and differ only locally by
our local experiences, but they still indiduate us relatively to
others locally, and so there are locally genuine different persons.
There is not only sequence of experiences, but plausible universal
bodies and context which relates those experiences, through their self-
referential logical and arithmetical (computational) relations.
