What's an entity?

Any system whose canonical description can be associated with some kind of fixed point theorem.

        Hi Roger,

        I find it harder to believe in finite universes. Why the
        precise number, whatever it is?

            Hi Stephen P. King
            It's easier to believe in salvation through faith or UFOs
            than infinite universes.

                牋� I think this paper might be fodder for a nice


                  About the Infinite Repetition of Histories in Space

                Francisco Jos� Soler Gil
                (Submitted on 22 Jan 2013 (v1
                <http://arxiv.org/abs/1301.5295v1>), last revised 23
                Jan 2013 (this version, v2))

                    This paper analyzes two different proposals, one
                    by Ellis and Brundrit, based on classical
                    relativistic cosmology, the other by Garriga and
                    Vilenkin, based on the DH interpretation of
                    quantum mechanics, both of which conclude that,
                    in an infinite universe, planets and living
                    beings must be repeated an infinite number of
                    times. We point to some possible shortcomings in
                    the arguments of these authors. We conclude that
                    the idea of an infinite repetition of histories
                    in space cannot be considered strictly speaking a
                    consequence of current physics and cosmology.
                    Such ideas should be seen rather as examples of
                    {\guillemotleft}ironic science{\guillemotright}
                    in the terminology of John Horgan.
