We argue that an infinite universe should not necessarily be avoided on philosophical grounds. Paradoxes of repeating behaviour in the infinite, or eternal inflationary, universe can be alleviated by a realistic definition of differing lives: not simply permutations of various quantum states. The super-exponential growth in the rules of a cellular automata is used as an example of surpassing the holography bound. We also critically question the notion that our universe could simply be a simulation in somebody else's computer.
