It can't be forever... I'm conscious now... so it was not "forever". But I
know you'll say infinity and all. So the meaning of forever before (me/you)
and after (me/you) is not quite the same.

I do not see the other branches, nor do I feel them. So I don't know how it is
supposed to be taken in account. And for the other hand, if all the universes
exists, and at whatever moments it splits into new branches for each possible
outcome, whatever I do, there will be branches where it turns bad (for me, my
friends, whatever)... Why put you high measure on universe where all is good
for your friend if you've done good in your life (or think about a life
insurance) compared to those were you didn't ?
