What is "you" then ? How do you define it ? Like I said in an earlier mail,
"me" seems to be an instantaneous and emerging concept... The Norman in the
simulation would say he is "him"... Talking about indexical reference when
talking about future/past/copied self has no meaning... Or please define what
is "you".
