No it is not because in all these thought experiments there is the
implicit assumption the the original is the one and only true me, they
are assuming the very thing there are attempting to demonstrate. That's
why they never start with "I walk out of the duplicating chamber and see
the original doing this and that". Just for once try taking the part of
the copy, you do get a new perspective.
