Do they divide into two infinite subsets on a binary measurement, or
do infinitely many come into existence in order that some
branch-counting measure produces the right proportion? Do you not

I don't think being uncountable makes it any easier unless they form a continuum, which I
don't think they do. I QM an underlying continuum (spacetime) is assumed, but not in
That is why I'm not sure that problems with assigning
measures to countably infinite sets (such as your example above re
even and square numbers) are really such a problem.
