So again... What's the point in creating a copy that thinks it's you? Wtf do you get out of that?

Continuation: from the copies perspective they are me and encompass all that I have ever been.

If there are multiple copies then, when I come to a fork in the road, I chose both. No more wondering what happens on the path not chosen.

In more practical terms, in the future there come well be journeys from which there can be no return. I.e., the clones will never have a chance of meeting. Be that separate simulations with no crossover or colony ships headed in different directions. From the copies point of view, each would be the sole version of me.

And point of view is everything.
