No I don't accept that, not if P(W) is the probability that the Washington Man will see
Washington; the probability of that would be 1 not 1/2. And if P(W) means the
probability the Helsinki Man will see Washington that would be 0 not 1/2 because the
Helsinki Man would have to be turned into something that is not the Helsinki Man before
the Helsinki Man can see a different city.
Why? If he flew to Washington he would still be the Helsinki man. He's the Helsinki man
because of the continuity of his memories, just as you are still John Clark even though
you've changed locations since yesterday.
