well put. it's no coincidence silicon valley techies and their degen followers love the idea. "fuck it this is just a dream anyway"
for a more level-headed approach to the question, and possible refutation to the probabilistic argument on sound theoretical ground, i recommend the fabric of reality by david deutsch. not an easy read.

Ah the "Multiverse," the modern hermetics of generative science, the precursor and predecessor of the Multiverse. Almost exclusively attributed to kabbalah mysticism in its contemporary form, is predicated on Cube worship. A slighted variation on Transhumanism and Transmutation whereby you ascend to other realities by way of some sort of transformative experience either biologically or mentally, or sometimes both. (ala X-men and "Mutants" etc.)

I have not read the book and am unfamiliar with the author. Thank you for the information.

Perhaps "david" deutsch avoids tired reiterations of Druids and Egyptians.

he does touch on the multiverse in his book, especially as a possible explanation for quantum uncertainty. but that's not the crux of his argument. the part on the decidability of whether we live in a simulation or not is more general and fundamental than that and pertains to the realm of computability theory and turing machines, which he articulates very well. definitely worth a read.
