I think Tegmark's level 4 explains-away any fine tuning of our
understanding of math/physics by allowing infinite sets (MWI).. every
conscience observer may wonder why their maths are setup just right. In
the universes which have magical math that lacks whatever consistency
evolution needs - there are presumably no observers.
