Okay, once again we have the idea that *I* hate, and which I am going to keep on objecting to, to wit, what you "want" to happen doesn't have the vaguest influence on that kind of large-scale pre-human reality. If the Reality is large enough, then you're going to get every possible configuration of 10^80 atoms in 10^11 lightyears at least once. And y'know, I think the Reality is that large.
