Multiverses and the Inverse Gambler's Fallacy

Multiverses and the Inverse Gambler's Fallacy

It is, they claim, the inverse gambler’s fallacy. We evolved in this universe because it is compatible with the evolution of complex life with sufficient stability to develop sentience and ask questions about things like the inverse gambler’s fallacy. In trying to avoid the inverse gambler’s fallacy they are, I think, committing the lottery fallacy. To extend this to Goff’s Joker fallacy – imagine you wake up in a room with four other people. We don’t need to explain why our universe won, only that some universe would win (otherwise that’s the lottery fallacy).
