In forking MWI worlds, your ID is constantly changing as it depends on
Your detailed nature is never duplicated. Every fork is a change from your
If comp supports MWI, why should your ID ever stay the same
since you are constantly forking with or without the doctor.
Yes, I wondered about that. However you look at it, digital consciousness involves
constant state changes, at the substitution level and below. You end up with something
like David Deutsch's snapshots or Fred Hoyle's pigeon holes, or someone, not sure
who's "capsule" model of identity. It's all very Heraclitean!
Of course in a (gasp!) materialist model, there are no "snapshots". The computations
that produce consciousness are distributed in space and time and one "thought" overlaps
That isn't obvious to me. Are you saying the brain manufactures 10^43 thoughts per
second? Would we know if the brain only made ~30 thoughts per second?
No, I'm saying, roughly, the latter. And those thoughts have extension in both space and
time (in the brain) as physically realized, so they can overlap. The overlapping times
them together and provides an ordering, corresponding to the experience of consciousness
