Russell, I must recant for I have erred!

For anyone else, the sight of a billion-year-old man
would not prove or disprove the Quantum Theory of
But for you, at age 1 billion, the probability that you
would reach a billion, given QTI, is one. And the
probability that you would reach a billion given not-QTI
is very tiny. So it is not unreasonable to believe QTI.
I'm not sure you can really quantify this.

On another note, the SSA is a dangerous to use
when the Self is not a representative sample - the
Self is immortal, whereas everyone else is not.
