I consider this a very insightful way of looking at it. Starting with
the universe's intitial conditions defined to have probability 1, every
branched history that follows will occur with some fractional
probability, and the sum of all the histories in any single point of
time will all have equal probabilities. In effect every point of time
would be equally weighted statistically.
