experience a QM immortality episode can't perform additional experiments
to answer (philosophical) questions about his identity. The only
observable is the survivor who can talk about who he is and what he

Please note that my understanding of QM is rather lame... Doesn't MWI
require some interaction between branches in order to explain things
like interference patterns in the two slit experiment? What does this
mean for the concept of "identity"?
