Which doesn't address what I said! This is not a case of multiple observers, sharing the same history, comparing the effective probabilities of "third person" events. It's case of multple observers, not sharing the same history, estimating the effective probability of being the sort of person who is *born into* various types of biological/historical situations. ===== - - - - - - - Jacques Mallah ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) Physicist / Many Worlder / Devil's Advocate "I know what no one else knows" - 'Runaway Train', Soul Asylum My URL: http://hammer.prohosting.com/~mathmind/ __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
