I read that the only problem with the "all possibilities possible" universe was the statistics of what we experience. Where are the universes where there's a plastic bag continuously flying around on thermals, never stopping? Or something like that...

@ Lily: the uncertaintity principle applies to thing as big as Bucky balls, these are as big as the inner working of a virus (for your reference). If not observed you will get patterns which have a interference which complies with the fact that every particle interferes with itself. Ergo that it has travelled every rout possible, also the one going to the stars and back. Although the straight line is the most plausible. I think they also found it in the navigation of doves, but than as paired particles.

@ treegod: as I understand, our statistics only works in our universe. other multiverse other rules.

Bart, I don't understand a word you're saying. Except for the size of bucky balls, which I have a pretty clear grasp on.
