If that's the case, then what does it mean for our past and future selves to all be conscious ...

So, there may be infinite points, but not infinite intervals of length l. So, in [beginning of time, now] I can only fit a finite amount of years if we ...

If you are asking where’s the contradiction in mapping the open interval (-infinity, +infinity ) to the closed interval [0,1] then it’s a well-known theorem (in the area of “real functions”) that we can’t do this with a continuous function, that is simply squeezing & re-interpreting the totality of time as residing in [0,1]. The fact that the one ...
