To be what is called "yourself", and to be what is called "the upload of yours" at the same time ... let say from today 12:00 until tomorrow 12:00 ...

Well this is indistinguishable from being "you" for 24 hours, THEN being "your upload" for another 24 hours. Or to switch among those situations every millisecond.

Indistinguishable from your first person experience, only something else happens each time.

This is the key point.

Imagine, that you'll have a MPD. What it is stored for Dr. Jekyll in the future, and what is stored for Mr. Hyde in the future - it is all stored for you.

Don't be distract with the fact that both copies are operational at the same time, occasionally. Upload and the old you.
