Chris Blanco Phil 206, 3/5/08 11:30-12:20 Topic # 3 The question asked is: “On p. 131, why does Thomas feel compelled to add claim 4+? Do you think this addition is actually required? Why or why not?” I believe that Thomas feels required to revise the original claim because he thinks that an infinitely number of universes are the same as “every” universe. I believe that this revision is not needed and would be wrong in doing so. When Thomas tries to revise the original claim “the number of universes generated is vast – perhaps even infinite”, he thinks it should be revised to “every possible universe is generated”. I don’t think this is accurate because that is just not the case. If there is such a thing as a “universe-generator”, it creates universes completely randomly.

Unformatted text preview: It can also create an infinite number of universes. While there is a possibility of an infinite number of universes created, that may or may not be the case. We can safely assume that there are many other universes that we do not know about. But we cannot be certain that every universe already exists. If universes are created randomly, why must they all be created all at once? Maybe there were universes that were not created because the dials were not turned correctly in order to produce that particular universe. Although an infinite number of universes may be created or already are created, that does not mean that every universe has or will be created....
