Actually the universes would have to be fundamentally different in order to create a multiverse with different outcomes. I'll explain why in grueling, agonizing detail.

When something happens, something else happens. That's cause and effect. So, say, something happens causing something else to happen, but that second something also caused something to happen. That's still cause and effect. That's how the timeline works in our universe, too. Any given moment *always* will be the effect of every combined cause that has happened before it. (Always emphasized because it's used irrelevant to time.)
We can use this property to determine that no matter how many times it is played out, a universe will always contain the exact same events, with the exact same circumstances, under the same hat of causes. If the beginning of the universe is the same, it's the same bloody timeline altogether. You'd have to change the beginning to make any deviation in the universe's "path," but to do so would change it so greatly that there would be no guarantee that it would even form the way it did. (butterfly effect.) If you changed a single atom of the universe within its first few seconds of creation, (assuming big bang) there's little to no chance the milky way would even form, let alone the fact that there's an astronomically small chance that humans would exist.
That is, of course, only if there can be no interference from outside of the universe. That interference could have the potential to butterfly it at key points

TL;DR common views on multiverse theory incorrect, unless transuniversal communication present

My bad I had the trans universal communication implied

I agree with what you said, but I would add that psychologically, if our actions had a purpose then maybe our insignificant actions have meaning.

the multiverse theory is the same as believing in heaven
