Well either the measure is strictly null and then I agree it does not exist
or it is not null and therefore it exists (by MWI). This all boils down to:
- If there always exists a moment after any given moment then from 1st
person perspective you will be one of the available next moment whatever it
is (and whatever low absolute measure it could have, but with the most
probable expectation given by the highest measure next moment where you
- If there isn't then OK, QI is false.
But here you're not clear at all, if the measure never drop to null, your
conclusion is erroneous.

Yes and yes or I don't understand what you're talking about.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
