    A pretty bold statement. I don't see that the laws of physics require this

    must be a small chance of living to be 200, e.g. if a load of cosmic rays 
miss your
    DNA by some miracle? Or something similar. Of course you end up rather 
frail in
    99.999999999999% of the branches, so QTI seems to suggest an eternity of 
being not
    quite dead. Not a great prospect...



Eventually the probability of the simulation hypothesis ( http://www.simulation-argument.com/faq.html ) takes over. The simulation hypothesis (that you exist in a simulation) essentially is already 100% if you believe in MWI. The question is what proportion of your explanations are simulations. Say it is 1%. Then when the probability of your organic survival drops ever lower in the many worlds, then your survival through the simulation hypothesis becomes increasingly likely.

?? What's the difference between the simulation and 'another world' (or this world for that matter)?
