No. The Helsinki Guy. He is the one asked to make a prediction, and to write it in his diary in Helsinki. It is made precise that the prediction concern where he will fell to be, indeed. But the "you" in the unique guy in Helsinki.

See above. Could comment my answer, and not your own deformation of them?

And around and around we go. Everybody has a 1P view, so just saying "from the 1P view" tells me nothing unless I know the 1P view of who.

And the diary was written by you, no doubt about it, but the trouble is after the teleportation there is a fellow in Moscow and a fellow in Washington that are both holding identical diaries that they both vividly remember having written. So how in hell can I now determine if a prediction made in Helsinki before anybody stepped into a teleportation box about what city "you" will see was correct or not? And just chanting for the 99'th time "you confuse the 1P and the 3P" will not help on iota in making that determination.

It is very simple. "W and M" is always wrong. W is wrong in half the case, like M. "W or M" is always confirmed. You have to look at all the resulting diaries.
```

```
```
```
All I want is a way to figure out who "you" is so I can figure out if the prediction about what city "you" will see was correct or not. Obviously Bruno Marchal's old definition of "you", the one that actually made sense ("you" concerns the guy(s) who will remember having been in Helsinki) simply won't do because it would render vast stretches of Bruno Marchal's theory wrong.
```

U have not shown that. It works in all cases, once you remind that the question is about the 1-you. Yes, there are two such 1-you, in the 3- view, but each feel unique, and knew this in advance.
```

```
```So what new definition is there
```
```
```
There is no new definition. You make this up. There is only the 1/3 distinction, that you mock without ever using. That explains why you are stuck. But, you do use it in the MWI, so you are just inconsistent.
```

```
that I can use to figure out if predictions concerning "you" turned out to be true or not?
```
```
You have to take all 1-you into account. They are logically exclusive, and that explains the indeterminacy. See my preceding posts and comment the answer with quote.

>why am I the one with the experience (described in the diary):
MMWWMWWMWWWWMMMMMM
Why this one?

```
You are the Moscow man because you are the man who saw Moscow, and you are the MMWWMWWMWWWWMMMMMM man because you are the man who saw MMWWMWWMWWWWMMMMMM. And iterating silly questions will not bring clarity.
```
So you just evade the question.
