I'm not certain if, strictly, this should be in the general discussion forum but the idea is based on quantum ideas so I have put it here. If I am mistaken, please, move it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I stumbled upon this idea when I was reading through lots of different interrelated articles on Wikipedia (it can be very addictive). Basically, it suggests that, if the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics is correct, that any observer will perceive their own life to continue in any situation in which it is physically possible (no matter how unlikely) for them to survive.

I have thought about the idea for a few days now and I am actually a little uncomfortable with it having at first been pleased with the concept.

Are there any thoughts about this idea?
