I keep saying this, too. The only reason it feels like uncertainty is
because we automatically assume we're "one continuous person" - even if we
know intellectually that there is going to be a duplication, we don't
experience it, in the MWI or the teleporter. From that point of view the
1-p uncertainty makes sense. Since that's the POV we're used to, it's
legitimate for us to at least feel as though we've experienced 1-p
uncertainty, since that's the state both of us end up in.
"Doubt from the future" is a very good description.
