    I love Karl but I'm not one of these people who think he is a genius. Apart from everyday common sense, I think he really is a dumb fuck. However he is completely correct in this video. How would yo know which one you are? Ricky really embarrasses himself by saying it's the stupidest thing anyone has ever said.

    Again, RIcky and Stephen are idiots. They took the question to mean "How would I know which of the two is me?" instead of "How would we agree on who is the clone given our shared memories?"

    I came to find this clip because I’ve seen this episode so many times and Ricky and Steve’s reaction to “how would I know which one I was” is so frustrating.
    I had to know that everyone else thought it was a really clever question as well 😂

    It´s not that far fetched actually, what Karl is arguing. If you have a doppelganger, surely you would at some point start asking questions and start to doubt if you, you yourself,
    is the original or the doppelganger. Is not THAT far fetched, think about it. What evidence can you present to yourself, that you are the original? In theory, the doppelganger, whom ever
    it is of the two of you, could present the exakt same evidence as you laid out yourself. Eventually you would end up twisting yourself mentally to this conundrum.

    • Dylan McArthur
      Dylan McArthur 5 месяцев назад

      Agree. This is actually just one example among many where Karl is more insightful than Ricky and Stephen. There's an episode in which Karl questions whether he is identical with his own mind or not, because he remembered to get something before leaving his house but he didn't feel like it was "him" who remembered it, it felt automatic. A totally valid point (although I still enjoy the hell out of Ricky and Stephen ragging him).

    The concept of the question is questioning whether you were the clone or not, because you would both have the same appearance, memories and personalities. Ricky would not get Black Mirror, where as Karl is on Charlie Brooker’s level.

    2:34 I've thought of this... and my clones wouldn't put up it with it any more than I would... we'd have to alternate days of the week we go to work or do shit errands. And if you have a clone for each day of the week it's not cost effective anymore. We'd all have to have different jobs and then it would just be 5 people living together. If you have sex with your clone with the lights off just because you both know exactly what you want and it's more efficient, and you know neither will fall in love, is it masturbating?

    It needs to be clarified whether it's a clone or a doppelganger, if it's a clone you know it's a copy and you are the real one, however if you meet the doppelganger without any prior knowledge that you'd be cloned you would question whether you're the real one

    Karl is right though, how does he know if he is really a clone or not? I mean, if he is an exact replica, then what would happen is they would both have the same memories. As far as Karl would know, he would be a clone, with all of the other Karl's memories. It's a genius response, and I honestly believe Karl is far smarter than credit would be given.

    This is my favourite Pilkington quote of all time: "How would I know which one I was." It sounds retarded, but in reality is quite profound. Would you know if it was reality or a dream? It's right on that line that separates genius and insanity.

    Karl has a point but I think what Ricky and Steve are saying is that Karl has the memory of the inbetween time in which the doppelganger was cloned and the clone doesn't. They weren't talking about the same thing.

    • Greig91

      +Andrew Bowman The way Karl words it is kind of odd because you would of course always know that you are you, for the reason that you stated.

      But how would you know that you hadn't just been created as a clone and plopped in front of the TV with all of the original's memories? If all of your memories are potentially fake then you can't trust them. That's the dilemma. You wouldn't be able to know if you were the original you, or the copy.
      It's easy to say that you'd know because you've been here all along, but you're only basing that on the memories of your life experiences. If you think about it from the clone's perspective they have been given all of the same memories, and as such will also be 100% certain that they have lived your life, even though they haven't. Their perspective is identical to your own.

    • Andrew Bowman
      Andrew Bowman 7 месяцев назад

      If you're sat at home watching telly, and your doppelganger walks in, you'd still know which one was you. Considering that we see things through our own eyes, we would always know who we were.

      I always felt like Ricky and Steve got too caught up in laughing at Karl. Karl obviously meant if the doppelganger thought he was real too then he couldn't be sure hes right. Kinda like that Schwarzenegger movie no one remembers.
      Edit; "The Sixth Day" just popped up on my Netflix, no word of a lie. Actually fucking creepy. But it was the one I was trying to remember.

    • Ophan Incorporated
      Ophan Incorporated Год назад +2

      Rob Vel But the fact Karl later asks if he can see what his Doppelganger sees and then declares that it isn't a Doppelganger based on that fact makes his point invalid as he obviously didn't understand the question. If anything he's just convoluted the question making it harder to answer. Assuming that Karl would react like a normal human and just answer rather than polluting the question with extra details and conditions was a fantasy. The only way they'd rectify this really is if Steve and Ricky had clarified and made up something like Karl often does and said the clone would Liquefy or cease to exist as opposed to continuing to exist. I doubt they meant he's there for a day then continues to live life with the real Karl.

    When Karl says "how would I know which one I was?" , he means to say he wouldn't know if he was the original or the clone. He could only know that if their memories diverged prior to cloning. Ricky misinterprets the question to mean: how would I know which one i was from a first person perspective. Obviously 'Karl' will know who he is based on his conscious experience, he just might not know if he is the original or the copy depending on the cloning process.

    Karl’s point is actually brilliant. Even if the real Karl watched them clone him with his own eyes, the clone would have this memory too! The clone Karl will have all his memories, and truly believe he is the real Karl. So the real Karl and clone Karl will remember the event in the same way. Meaning the real Karl could be clone Karl and vice versa.

    It sounds like a Stupid and VERY funny question "How would I know which one I was?".... But it's actually pretty deep.. An exact Clone of yourself IS you.. Sure, you can tell yourself "I'm me", but an exact copy of you would be thinking the same thing. You could challenge "yourself" to some private Qs., but "you" would always know the answer.. So what the F*uck - WHICH ONE AM I!!!!

    Ricky really is much more closed-minded than he thinks he is. Karl's question is a common science-fiction premise--rooted in philosophy. Two people are identical with the exact same memories. (Karl even asks if it's just appearance, or also personality.) They can't be sure which one is the original and which one's the duplicate. He'd have found it if he read enough Philip K Dick.

      So, I see what you mean, like.. Chamber 1 and Chamber 2. Chamber 1 holds the original, and so when the clone is created, a tattoo is placed on both of them, on the original is #1 on the clone is #2. But, that's the thing, the idea is it's is a PERFECT, EXACT, COPY. Aka, anything you change to yourself, he would also change. Though I see what you mean.

    I am frustrated that ricky thinks that Karl's question is dumb. It's actually a question asked in philosophy classes when talking about the same scenario.How do you know you aren't the clone if both of you have exactly the same memory? Assume they put you asleep and you woke up and there is now a clone of you. and then assume that the clone has exactly the same memories up until you are put to sleep for the cloning process.
