annoying, but we can degrade a lot, yet we can't die (with just comp,

"consciousness phase transition", though.
Aside from not finding myself the oldest person on the planet, I see a
with quantum immortality in that quantum mechanics is time-reverse invariant.
So I should be 'past immortal' also. But as Mark Twain said, "I do not fear
death, in view of the fact that I had been dead for billions and
years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest
it." If we are what our brains do it is easy to see why we should live
past (low entropy) to future (higher entropy), be born and die.
Leaving aside time reversibility (which I am myself rather hot on) for a
you're quantum immortal you can only expect to /eventually/ find yourself
oldest person. Give it time. You have to go through the bit beforehand
True, but finding yourself in the first 1/N of your life when N=inf is
Sure, but the thing is that *you have to*, and asking such question at that stage is
very likely... you can't be 10⁵ years old before having been 1 year old... it's simply
So you're falling back on the all-purpose 'everything' answer; whatever you observe is one
of everything and that why everything is consistent with it - like why I'm not a Chinaman?
