Nonsense. What I am arguing is that we can expect to experience a continuous
flow of consciousness forever. That does not mean we have an objective
identity. I am arguing about our experience, which is 100% subjective.

You seem unable to separate the issue of objetive from subjective.
Objectively, there is no structure to the universe; structure is only seen
when you occlude your viewpoint by being subjective. This is Tegmark's major
insight in 'Does the universe contain alsost no information?' (BTW do you
think that he and Schmidhuber make sense on this?)
