If you are a being that have never observed magical events
any duplicate of you "will" never have observed any magical
event either (otherwise you would differ and no longer be
A true duplicate of you will have had exactly the same
experiences (magical ones and all others) as you had.
It might be that your futures will differ but as long
as your are duplicates you will experience no difference
and as soon as you will have a different experience you
will no longer be true duplicates. You will never be
aware that your previously counterpart has had a
different experience and is no longer your counterpart
(that's contingency and necessity).

*As well*. But it might be that you are just in one which
*is not* overlayed (that's contingency). What "overlayed"
might mean is not so clear to me anyway. In case of such
"overlays" there might be counterparts of you in all of
them but it might also be that none of them can be aware
of what the others are aware of.

If you are not a sorcerer, there would be no counterpart
of you in such worlds (that's contingency and necessity).
If you are a sorcerer, it's a mystery to me why you do
not observe magical events in this universe.
