Thanks for the clarity.

Of course when we move to Level 2's eternal chaotic

inflation, we end up with an infinite number of

multiverses identical to our level 1. So although our

specific level 1 multiverse may experience heat death,

entropic and proton decay, there are, were and will be

an infinite number of other identical copies (not to

mention an infinite number of non-identical ones - of

our level 1 multiverse being played out all over again

forever at Level 2.

Therefore, there will be an infinite number of you's

and me's who will survive to the end of our level 1

multiverse, and perhaps endlessly further beyond that

- Linde Scenario, basement universes, figuring out how

to travel in level's 2,3 and 4, etc.

Next question, Tegmark talks about the inflationary

space at level 2 that is eternally, chaotically

stretching, which in turn gives rise to symmetry

breaking into a variety of various dimensionalities.

So the question is, what is the number of dimensions

of this inflationary space? Is it infinite Hilbert

Space?

Cheers,

Paul Hughes
