How come I'm me?

sure!

yeah that’s true but not really what I was getting at :frowning:

like it’s literally unknowable why I am me

I liked The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman. Consciousness is a field, like an electromagnetic field, and the effects of the field coalesce around human bodies (cos of angels, don’t worry about it). So I guess you’re you because n nobody else can occupy the same position in spacetime as yourself, and therefore disrupt the consciousness field in the same way.
