our brains do it is easy to see why we should live from past (low entropy)

Leaving aside time reversibility (which I am myself rather hot on) for a moment, if
you're quantum immortal you can only expect to /eventually/ find yourself the oldest
person. Give it time. You have to go through the bit beforehand beforehand...
True, but finding yourself in the first 1/N of your life when N=inf is highly
