I see at least three possibilities:
1. It is not so sure that there actually exist sets of
equations of which a "Harry Potter universe" includes
a counterpart of you.
2. There may well exist a "Harry Potter universe" that
includes a counterpart of you but it is not causaly
related to our universe (too far for instance) and
this is why we cannot observe it.
3. You actually are in a "Harry Potter universe" but it
just happened that you are not a sorcerer and you must
know that in "Harry Potter universes", non sorcerers
are prevented fromm observing magical events.
