And just to follow up on that, there are still an infinite number of irrational numbers between 0 and 0.00001. But not as large an infinity as those between 0.00001 and 1.

No, the two are exactly the same uncountable infinity, because there is a 1-to-1 mapping between them.

So extrapolating to universes, the very low probability, white rabbit universes also occur an infinite number of times, but that does not make them equally as likely as the universes which behave as we would classically expect.

But computationalism only produces rational numbers.

And constructive real numbers, and dovetailing on non enumerable set of real numbers, etc. That play a r├┤le for the limiting statistics on the first person views.

If you subdivide a continuum, I assume you can do so in a way that gives the required probabilities. For example if the part of the multiverse that is involved in performing a quantum measurement with a 50-50 chance of either outcome is represented by the numbers 0 to 1, you can divide those into 0-0.5 and 0.5 to 1. Doesn't David do something like this in FOR? (Or is this too plistic?)
