Not the probability but the measure. The probability is 1, it is garanteed
that there exists a future continuation of me now. ASSA is only about the
measure, but even if it come vaninshingly small (and I don't think ASSA
makes sense at all), that wouldn't render the one living in a low measure
branch (as seen from ASSA) not real (same thing as seen from RSSA, if MWI
is true, and you're finding yourself in a "branch" that had only
1/10¹⁰⁰⁰⁰⁰⁰⁰⁰⁰ probability, it will be as real as now), as all the branches
are considered real, measure is not at play here.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
