So the Moscow man's assertion that he sees Moscow and only Moscow is only
half the information needed to invalidate the prediction that the Helsinki
Man would see both Moscow and Washington; not that I can see what
prediction has to do with personal identity

There is simply no way that could be true because I've heard you say a

in no way follows from computationalism; so the only thing I know for sure
about "comp" is it doesn't mean computationalism.
