So the only certainty is uncertainty. That's Pliny. The ancients knew stuff.
No, it seems like he has a pretty firm grasp of the subject.
If you were dealing with a defined number, you'd be right. It's possible that even in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 universes, there would be zero copies of you. But 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 isn't infinity. It doesn't matter what the chance of x happening is, unless it's exactly 0%, there will be an infinite number of universes where x happens, even if the probability is 0.000000000001%.
