    This.



    The laws of probability, combined with entropy and heat death of the universe say no to this.



    What's it made of then?
    chicken nuggets.

    After the heat death of the universe, nothing happens. Everything is in its equilibrium state: no processes can occur.

    As for getting out of the universe, how does the information of your consciousness get out of this universe into another, in which (if it exists) the laws of physics need not even be the same and hence your consciousness may not even be capable of being constructed there.
    just at random. it's not case of "getting out" of this one and into that one. It's just being produced at random in that one. Whatever your consciousness and memory comes down to could happen again. Or maybe there's more than one way to produce your consciousness and memories.

    You're talking about Boltzmann brains I think. I guess in this case (duplication) there is a chance that that could happen, but it wouldn't be you. Its like a clone - even if its identical to you, its not you.
