preprint description
Simon Saunders and David Wallace are attempting to use a modified form of David Lewis's analysis of personal fission to support the thought that prior to undergoing Everett branching an informed subject can be uncertain about which outcome s/he will observe. I argue that a central assumption of this seductive idea is questionable despite appearing innocuous and that at the very least further argument is needed in support of it.
