If the multiverse concept, as I understand it, is true, then anything that

over again. How strange and pointless it all seems.
I'll grant you it may be strange, but how is it any more pointless than
anything that can happen (or a subset thereof) happening only once, or a
finite number of times?
That's a good question, forcing me to realize that I have an irrational
"fuzzy feeling" that there "should" be a point to it all that I can
understand, and that a sequence of events "should" occur only once.
Implicit in these feelings is the assumption that there is some kind of
"God" which designed the multiverse for some reason, and keeps track of all
events. I suppose my early "first cause" training is at work. I think now
that the premises of the First Cause argument are unproven.
