Continued; Onto the idea that there are an infinite other me's in other universes. These other me's you are referring to are not me, Im here. There maybe someone similar to me but they are not an exact copy of me.Sorry for the delay in responding. To help me express my oppinion I first need to say something about infinity. I've done this by answering the thread 'Can one infinity be larger than another infinity?'

I also believe there is not an exact replica of anything or any event for the following reason;
Take any two particles, say atoms, now take a perfect ruler and measure the distance between their centres. My ruler being perfect has its graduation lines marked out with ideal lines which have no thickness. This pair of atoms will not have obliged you by existing to exactly match the graduations of your ruler. The atoms centre point and the ruler's graduations are infinitely thin remember, so the chance that they exactly match up is 1 in infinity, ie zero. There are an infinite possible ways to divide your ruler but each graduation line will still be infinitely thin, so it doesn't matter how you choose the rulers markings they will never match up exactly with the centres of the atoms.
In other words, it's not possible to measure the exact distance between the atoms. What's more, they don't even have a knowable distance.
Now take another pair of atoms and using the same argument, there's a zero possibility for them to occur with the same separation as the first pair.
So the bottom line is if you can't even get 2 pairs of atoms to be the same distance apart how on earth are you going to get 2 objects with a zillion atoms to be exactly the same. I also think the same reasoning will apply to all the other parameters a system may have, eg temperature, pressure and constituent ratio etc. So nothing in the Universe of infinite universes (sorry Cat) can ever be exactly the same.
Also the kind of infinity I,m talking about is 'aleph 1' or the continuous infinity which is larger than 'aleph 0', the basic countable infinity, as I described in my post on the thread 'Can one infinity be larger than another infinity?'
When I say the above example has a '1 in infinity' chance of occurring, remember it is a '1 in (aleph 1) infinity', so a very small zero indeed. Bear in mind that the infinite number of universe's is 'aleph 0' infinity ie countable infinity, so a lot smaller than the 'aleph 1' infinite variation of parameters of events and objects. Thus highlighting the reason why all possible objects and events cannot fit into the smaller size infinity of countable universes.
To put it in one sentence. The type of infinity of possible events and objects (aleph 1) is of a greater size of infinity than the countable infinity of universes (aleph 0), and so won't fit in.
The above waffle is just my personal thought, I've never seen anyone saying this before, so there's a good chance it's nonsense. See what you think and I'd love your opinions either way.
No, I didn't say this. All I've said previously is that space is infinite, 'The Infinite' (my name for the Universe) and that it contains infinite contents of infinite other big bangs (for which there isn't a word for yet, other than incorrect words such as pocket universes or bubble universes)As both you and I have said before, in an infinite Universe (U) everything that can exist, exists.
What I do believe is that 'The Infinite' is comprised of infinite variation, with no events or objects repeating. So I'm in agreement with voidpotentialenenergy as per his above post, but not with his explanation for it (from another thread). No cigars as he puts it.
