Statistical adjustment for a measure of healthy lifestyle doesn't yield the truth about hormone therapy
In the case of the causal patch, fat geodesic, scale-factor, lightcone time, and CAH+ measures described below, it requires, roughly speaking, that the decay rate of any vacuum in which BBs are produced be larger than the BB formation rate in that vacuum, in some cases in addition to other criteria [64, 47, 48].
Bubble collisions and measures of the multiverse
Other proposals, such as using scale factor time [119–121] (a global measure) or the causal diamond measure [122] (a local one), seem to work better (see [123] for a recent review of both global and local measures)21 .
