The idea that I will live this life exactly as I am living it right now for n number (n=∞) of times is fantastic. Even if I accept that matter is finite and time is infinite, the idea of eternal recurrence will not hold ground if there is no definite evidence that matter (every particle) will combine in a predetermined fashion. That is only a definite number of combinations are possible. Other than that, the moment that we are living right now, (a combination of matter) has a history. For events to recur on such a grand scale, at least the starting point should be same. Now, the question is what can be the starting point and whether we can have the same starting point. If we cannot have the same starting point or there is no such thing as a starting point then the whole idea of eternal recurrence becomes a mere fantasy.
