If each hour you have a 1% chance of going to a Drelb world, then at the end of the day would it be ~24%? Start: 99% physical + 1% Drelb simulations After first hour: Objective measure for all states is: (49.5% physical surviving + 49.5% physical dying + 0.5% Drelb surviving to maintain illusion in physical world + 0.5% Drelb giving you an afterlife continuation.) We can ignore the cases where you die as contributing anything toward your expectation, so we have: 49.5% physically surviving physically, 0.5% surviving in the maintained illusion, and 0.5% surviving in Drelb's after life, we renomalize all of these to 100%, to get expected subjective continuations, and see: 98.01% (surviving physical universe + 0.99% surviving Drelb simulation of universe) and 0.99% surviving in afterlife. It seems after each iteration, there is a 1% chance of ending up there. If you repeated this 1,000 times what is the probability you subjectively never end up reach the Drelb afterlife state?
