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.
