"Creative"?  Slawomir's position, no matter how dressed up in talk of
atoms and space-time trajectories, reduces to nothing more than
arguing against the well-known identity of indiscernibles.

The opposition argue in functional terms that to the extent a
difference makes no difference, it is no difference.  However, they
continue to state this as if "differences" can be completely

Both sides appear to be utterly blind to the necessity of an observer
function, to any discussion of meaning.

If this debate ever develops from "what is personal identity" to "what
do we mean by person identity" then it might get interesting.
