It's like saying you are vastly more likely to find yourself a bacterium than a human. This is the case if you consider youself standing ouside of the universe, trying to predict whether you will end up a bacterium, human neonate or 40 year old - which I guess is what you mean when you say the ASSA is a predictor of birth order - but obviously if you have any stance at all, you are already embedded in the universe, not a disembodied mind contemplating its possible futures.Stathis Papaiaonnou
