Memories are not a necessary requirement for experience and thus are not a requirement for subjective continuation and survival. You survive despite forgetting things, or being in a meditative state not drawing on any past memories.

You're talking about long term memories. If you lost ALL memories I don't think you would be the same person. Having experiences is not necessarily the same as being Jason Resch.

I will accept that when you can point to a computational state not reachable from some other arbitrary computational state.

Anartica is reachable from California, but that doesn't mean I'm going there.
