OK I agree with you but up to a point.. see below

True from the third person perspective.
True from the first person perspective if nothing in those futures
threatens the continued existence of the observer
Partially false from the first person perspective if there are
contingencies in those futures threatening the continued existence of the
observer. Then these contigencies must also be factored in the
probabilities of these futures happening, more precisely, being observed
by the (first person) observer.
