*Applying this to a horse race, one not only gets dIscrete multiple universes, one for each horse as the winner, but assuming space is continuous, an additional uncountable set of universes for each winner, where the losers have different positions when the winner crosses the finish end line. This is not only beautiful. but utterly sublime. Wouldn't you agree?
