Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation, Tooru Kazasumi
If another me was born somewhere else, and had led a different life, how would he feel? If there was another version of myself somewhere on the other side of the ocean, what would happen if I were able to meet him? Would I be able to be his friend? Or would the differences in our upbringing be something that I couldn't overcome? Can I understand him because he is me? Or will he be impossible to understand because he's me?

If an another me was born elsewhere and had a different life, then that person wouldn't be me. If wouldn't be another version of me either. These is the flaw of the way he thinks. If we take what he says for a fact, then everyone is another version of everyone else.

Yup, you are definitely right.
Humans become themselves based on experiences and memories. A wrong step in this algorithm would have made for a completely different algorithm for it would take other paths rather than the paths taken with the correct step. xD

I don't think "wrong" and "correct" are suitable words here. That would be like a VN, where you have only bad endings with one good. And since there are countless choices mathematically noone would be able to reach it yet. ^^
(Though it does not eliminate the possibility.)

Actually, this entire statement can be debated differently based on how you see it. Probably only 2 ways, however, I wouldn't want to get started and breathe fire over all this, but, really, it just depend on how you see this quote and the words you emphasize on.

No, there wouldn't be a good or bad ending, just an ending. When I said the correct step it meant choosing the way to this present state. Because that's what I would call a "correct" step. The step that was taken in order to make this very conversation possible. The step that was taken in order to make yourself possible, that's what I would call "correct". Sorry for my, eh... curtailment of information on the message above. This isn't as well, very abundant in information, but... meh... it works.
