you can even say in truth there is only one "I"
In your theory a person is a chain of experiences, so different
chain => different person. It seems more accurate to say there
is no "I".
But the chain is immortal and cyclic,
Why do you assume it's cyclic? Where was it before life evolved?
convoluted with periods of amnesia,
Amnesia = gap in the chain.
branching, etc. Any state eventually leads to every other state.
Sounds like wishful thinking.
Why? It entails that there is only one person,
Not only that, it entails that the one person lives each life over
Like in Gödel rotative universe.
But time is an indexical, it makes no sense to ascribe an absolute
time to the living of an experience.
But "I" is indicial too, so it makes no sense to say it is the same
Unless you agree with "Clark's definition of personal identity".
(Where the W-man, and the M-man have the right to consider being the H-
man, as both copies have the H-man memories, and this corresponds to
the first person identity used in the UDA, that is the personal
memories contained in the diary which undergo the duplications).
But the personal identity has not a big role. Even if you are totally
amnesic, comp will predict the movie "white noise" for the iterated
Like the quantum MW predicts that a photon beam in the relevant states
will split in half when going thorugh the relevant polarization
In the UD all experiences are "lived" an infinity of times, but the
1p makes it unique,
And it makes the 1p unique.
From the 1p view. Indeed.
