Simple. Shooting yourself with a gun or whatever means you use to end your
one universe does not guarranttee that you do not grow in all other
Unless the laws of physics differ across the multiverse, which I understand
incorrect, your copies will grow old and die in every universe.
I think it would help if you put your comment beneath whatever you were
replying to. :)
However, assuming I understand what you're saying I will attempt a reply...
The laws of physics don't /mandate/ growing old and dying, they just make it
overwhelmingly likely. But in a multiverse everything happens, even incredibly unlikely
That's another dubious popularization. Certainly weird things can happen in a QM world.
But *everything*? There are still conservation laws, superselection rules, limited speed
of signaling. Repeating measurement doesn't produce "every" value, it produces the same
eigenvalue as before. Many QM processes are deterministic in one world, c.f.
