Yet under MWI, the multiverse would have to 'care' enough to know the difference between unity and multiplicity. The idea of a multiverse or universe is also in our model of it, but since we too are made of the same elementary physics that everything else in the universe is made of, then the difference between any model we have of the universe and any modeling capacity that can exist in the universe could only be one of degree not of kind. All models make sense because they are based on some sense that the universe makes. Whatever that elementary sense is cannot be a blind statistical exhaustion. As far as I can tell, it must be coherent, consistent, sensitive and creative. Once you have coherence and sensitivity, then you can mask it with insensitivity to generate multiplicity, but it might be more like perceptual fill-in on every level - a pseudo-multiplicity rather than a Planck level, granular realism. Granularity is a model generated by visual and tactile perception as far as I know.
