An argument against quantum immortality

Tegmark and others suggest that a conscious agent will be immortal in the Everett interpretation of quantum mechanics.* But the argument should work in the -t direction as well so we ought to have  existed from infinitely far in the past. But this does not seem to be the case.

* M Tegmark, Fortsch. Phys., 46: 855-862, 1998.
