    Add your comment. Paul, perhaps you could whisper into Blog's ears that if the one universe doesn't turn up any Any ?'s, then it shouldn't pull its tentacles out coz the guys of the fancy equations tell us that there could a whole load more bouncing about. Whatever happens, it looks like the Any's are here ad infinitum.
