You have to be careful with this one, though. As it only deals with a
lineal universe in infinite time, you're limited to any one existance
at any one time. With the MWH, you have an infinite number of yours
split off from the same existance at some point but in this, you have
to allow for you to evolve again and the same environment to exist
once more, which /is/ possible but just not as satisfying as another
entity co-chronologically with you (in a parallel MWH universe) ruling
the world/universe ...
