I call shenanigans - an absolute perfect copy of me, has f!ree will,  
just like me, and therefore does whatever the Hell it pleases. We  
diverge in subjective experience from the moment the copying process  
is complete, given that we are each looking through two separate sets  
of eyes, and accruing sense-data from two unique and separate  
locations i.e. separate bodies.

Because we do not occupy the same place at the same time, otherwise  
there wouldn't be a copy, just a schizophrenic.
