This paper is concerned with some classic questions about the counting of possibilities that arise in the philosophy of space and time. I argue that we should think that two Newtonian worlds can differ only as to when things happen and that general relativistic worlds can differ in something like the same way. By the lights of contemporary philosophy of physics, the first of these theses is mildly unorthodox, the second more or less heretical.
