So *you* Quentin Anciaux (incidentally, how do pronounce that?) don't necessarily continue. It is just that there is a continuation of 1p POVs. So we're down to the question of what constitutes a 1p POV. I know what is my own, don't know for you, but I assume you do know it for yourself.
Yes, but how do I "know" it? Is it a matter of perceiving temporal overlap of thoughts - no, because then I woudn't be the same person after anesthesia. Is it a matter of memories - that seems plausible; although I don't seem to need very many memories or access them often to be "me". Is it a matter, as comp suggests, of realizing the "Brent" input-output function in the brain?
