Ray,

Like I said, the multiverse idea isn't something that I take very seriously.

"And so, the idea of simulated "universes" should at least be considered a possibility, if only because some ETs may have eventually acquired such technology...Personally, I don't agree with the general idea, although I will certainly grant that it is certainly possible. "

My main point was on the immense improbability of us being the only intelligent species in the universe. Chance theory rules that out resoundingly.

Namaste
