Those branches where I have died (as opposed to those where I am about to die) are of zero measure, while those where I have survived are of non-zero measure. If you give the branches where I have died a vote when calculating my measure, then why not give the branches where I never existed a vote as well? I am dead almost everywhere in the multiverse. -- Stathis Papaioannou --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
