But in that case we can agree that anticipation is irrational...

Why should I care what happens to some guy in the future who thinks he's me?
We may not share any of the matter comprising our bodies, and our brain

rational nor irrational that I anticipate the experiences of a future
version of me; rather, it is a description of the way human brains have
evolved to think.
