Then why did it include the words "following duplication" in the above?
```
You did not quote me.
```
Then, I understand the quote as alluding to the confirmation of the prediction done before.

For a logician you sure aren't very logical. If today I predict that tomorrow a green object will be found in Washington and tomorrow you show me a red stop sign that you found in Washington does that provide enough information to prove that my prediction of yesterday was wrong?
```

No. But that's a different experience. if you predict now that you will see Washington after pushing on the button and opening the door, and that after pushing the button and opening the door you (the one in front of me to who I ask the question in Moscow) see Moscow, that will refute (from his 1p, as the question conerns the 1p) his prediction.

Obviously after the duplication!! Before the duplication or teleportation nothing unusual has happened yet so there is a 0% chance that Jason Resch will find Jason Resch to be in a alternate location.

So before I bought the quantum lottery ticket, there is 100% choice that I will win?
```Correct from the 3p view: I do win in some universe.
Incorrect from the QM statistics: I do lose in most universes.

```
So here, you are oscillating between a confusion between before/after doing the duplication and the 1p/3p confusion.
```
```
The fact that you have to make a confusion at all cost, illustrate well the inconsistencies you need to refute step 3.
