Hence measure is thesame for any observer.The whole concept of "measure" is based on assigning differentprobabilities to different infinite sets--the fact that two sets have thesame cardinality doesn't imply they must have the same measure. Forexample, any continuous probability distribution used in statistics (thebell curve, for example) can be used to assign a measure to an arbitraryfinite interval (which necessarily contains an infinite number of points),the measure just being the area under the curve over that interval.JesseJesse I agree with you from the third person perspective. You can only takea measure of infinite sets when you have more then one set . In other wordsyou need at least two sets so you can compare them. However in the case offirst person perspective, the observer has only his own set. All he has isthe cardinality of the set and he has only one set. No other set to compareit to. The cardinality is the same for all first person observers.George

`But if you have one set with an infinite number of elements, you can assign`

`different measures to different infinite subsets of that set. And weren't`

`you talking about an infinite "number of histories" above?`
