Hi Debbie, The reason you don't buy the possibility is that your scale is
too small. The reason you could exist in multiple univeses is that all
possible arrangments of matter have been carried out and now to build
another universe, you must begin repeating the arrangements of matter in
other universes. A simple case is the 3 sequences:
These are all the possible arrangements of these letters. If you now try to
make another 3 sequence, you simply must repeat the pattern. In the case of
universes, the number of possibilities are much higher, say 10^118 different
ways to arrange the matter. After that many universes, one must start
repeating. Remember from my previous note to Blake, Inflation allows an
almost infinitude of universes to be created, thus repetition must occur.
So with your case of your parent's night of fun, with enoguh universes,
there was an identical couple doing the same thing with an identical sperm
and egg being joined, elsewhere, whatever elsewhere means.
