In QM, the state evolves unitarily, which conserves total probability. However, not all observations are compatible with being an OM of the person of interest (ie the observer dies in some branches). Consequently, the total measure of observer moments must diminish as a function of OM age, roughly given by the observed 3rd person mortality curve. After 70-80 years, the total measure diminishes rapidly, but not to zero (assuming no cul-de-sac). Hence my statement - the measure must be biased towards being a baby.
