What does that mean, exactly? I don't know how universes would
"interact" per se. If they could meaningfully interact, they wouldn't
be separate universes.

I don't understand what you are getting at -- could you re-explain it?
In any case, universes aren't sentient. They don't interact, eat,
sleep, etc. I don't know what it would mean for a universe to
"consume" another universe. The Level I multiverse being infinite
does not imply you can violate the laws of physics, just that there is
an infinite amount of space and stuff within that space...
