No, that is NOT what I said! I said that if Russell Standish were
duplicated then Russell Standish would be in Moscow and Washington.
I also said the vague and sloppy use of words like "you"and "he"
and "I" and "the man" is at the root of Bruno's intense confusion,
and apparently yours as well.

Bullshit. And this beautifully illustrates why I am reluctant to go
back to square one and list all the blunders Bruno made in just the
first few pages that I read, I have already written about
6.02*10^23 posts that covers the subjects in this post and most are
in far far greater detail.
Just provide one link.
We have answered them all. You kept repeating the same confusion
between different person points of view, or, in some post, you confuse
the phenomenology of the indeterminacy with all their different
logical origins. In many, you just change the definitions given.
I have come to the conclusion that logical arguments will not
convince anybody if it is their policy to first decide what they
want to believe and only then look for evidence to support it.
I have never met a scientist not convinced by the first person
indeterminacy, accepting to discuss this privately or publicly.
You try to avoid the debate, and that's the only strategy used by
philosophers to hide the (quite simple) discovery.
You act like a pseudo-religious dogmatic pseudo-philosopher, it seems
to me. If you would have a real argument, you would take a pleasure to
explain it calmly, and without using insults and mocking hand waving.
So, provide an argument, answer the questions, or try to admit that
you lost your point.
