Excuse my ignorance, I realise SSA is the self-sampling assumption (I think
I read about that in Russell's book) but what is the ASSA, and why is it
useless and wrong?

Reading posts further down, it seems to me that we're dealing with a
continuum rather than discrete branches, is that right? So everyone is an
uncountable infinity of selves. (And always will be, for ever and ever...)
