While I do not dispute your observations, how much of this is traceable
to world-view or the state of understanding of _a_ multiverse, and of
the ways of getting around in it? If one only knew about walking and
the Underground system, for example, one would have a very different
conception of places in London and how best to get from one to another
from that of someone who only knew about taxis.

_Given the data we have_, I think either the polytope or the
single-multiverse model is supportable.
