In an uncountably infinite multiverse, the relative measure of me,
humanity, Earth, the galaxy and probably the Hubble sphere is effectively
zero. At least, I think it is. In a quantised multiverse which allows every
instance of a finite number of 'worlds' to exist (a very large number, of
course) then the absolute measure of, say, me is finite (though very
small), and one might in principle be able to work out what it is. But in a
quantised multiverse I'm not sure QTI would hold. Or *can* the multiverse
be quantised in that sense?
