quando teoria ed esperimento si uniscono...
"My name is Lt. Aldo Raine and I need me eight soldiers. We are gonna be dropped into southern France, dressed as civilians. We're gonna be doing one thing, one thing only. Killing Nazis!"
"Members of the National Socialist Party conquered Europe, through murder, torture, intimidation and terror. And that's exactly what we're going to do to them. We will be cruel to the Germans. And through our cruelty, they will know who we are. They will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us. And the Germans will not be able to help themselves from imagining the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands and out boot hills and the edge of our knives. The Germans will be sickened by us, the Germans will talk about us and the Germans will fear us. Nazi ain't got no humanity. They need to be destroyed! Each man under my commands owes me 100 Nazi scalps. AND I WANT MY SCALPS!"
You and I are highly unlikely to exist in a civilization that has produced
only 70 billion people, yet we ﬁnd ourselves in just such a civilization. Our
circumstance, which seems diﬃcult to explain, is easily accounted for if (1)
many other civilizations exist and if (2) nearly all of these civilizations (including our own) die out sooner than usually thought, i.e., before trillions
of people are produced. Because the combination of (1) and (2) make our
situation likely and alternatives do not, we should drastically increase our
belief that (1) and (2) are true. These results follow immediately when
considering a many worlds version of the “Doomsday Argument” and are
immune to the main criticism of the original Doomsday Argument.
