Chris, I am with this list for a decade or so, and learned that this group accepts a negative position as well, not only 'hosanna' to the 'officially (here) accepted one. So here it comes: In my (heretic? and personal) view 1. universes in the Multiverse are not necessarily identical, indeed "all possible" (see Stathis' reply to you) means IMO diversity vs identity, so I find it unfounded that "in all 'other' universes the 2nd law should flourish" (indeed I consider it even here some (reductionist) model-related (and restricted) deduction from our limited observational skills and their 'historic' (applied math based) explanation). 2. In my view of an interactive wholeness "we" exist in here (if really) - in relation to the TOTAL of THIS universe - a transfer into different background (universe?) would necessarily discontinue our complexity (uncuttable total 'self?') we are here. What may happen 'there' (if...) is at best an assumption and I would not draw further conclusions (definitely not as accepted facts!) by building further levels on unfounded assumptions - no matter how fit they may be to a theory we favor.
You (and others) may believe whatever one wants to, you asked a question and I provided a (rather negative) reply. "MY" opinion.
