Fifty years ago today I was born in a small town in Texas. About nine months before that I was conceived. The genetic makeup of my physical body that I know as my own was determined by one in over 100 million of my father’s sperm cells in the ejaculation that led to my birth. So my conception occurred in at least 100 million parallel universes, all with the possibility that I will be born about nine months later. Notice how synchronized all of these universes are in both time and space. All of the cells in my body divided and subdivided from a single egg cell of my mother – one on over a million – that was available to be fertilized for one day of my mother’s 30 day menstrual cycle. However you calculate the odds, an individual’s concept is a rare event that creates many universes.
