Thanks for the comments, which I hear as saying that Tegmark's ideas do not
contradict my notion of an infinite void with random big bangs occurring at
random times.

But is that correct? Tegmark says, ". . . processes early in the big bang
spread matter around with a degree of randomness, generating all possible
arrangements with nonzero probability."

If the big bang generated ALL possible arrangements, then that big bang
would have had to distribute an infinite amount of matter/energy. Did that
single big bang then generate the entire multiverse that Tegmark describes?

In other words, does Tegmark say that multiple big bangs are occurring, or
was one single big bang responsible for the multiverse?
