Past-self advice

Is it me, or is the pink character needlessly assuming we're talking about single-thread time travel, rather than multiple-universes one? She justifies it by saying it follows from "it [being her] giving advice to past [her]", but I don't see how it does.
Is she saying it's pointless to give an alternativeUniverse!self advice because thisUniverse!you won't benefit? Seeing as how she is genetically identical to past her, it has the most basic of benefits- spreading your genes through increased life success.
What am I missing?

Alternate universes are parallel ones. Travelling between them doesn't require time travel and there is no indication that time travel can land you in an alternate universe or reality. They are theoretical fictional ideas to begin with.

Multiple universes (or sub-universes) "can" exist and within the same time scale. They are separated by space but the distance in between is expanding at an accelerated rate making it impossible to move between one and another unless you are accelerating at an even faster rate. Note that the distance between galaxies in the same universe expands much slower than the distance between that particular universe and other ones. This is how we group a universe. Also multiple universes don't necessarily resemble each other and there is no guarantee that they are inhabited by living beings.

Causality isn't a problem if you told yourself to tell younger you when they reach your age.
As for my past advice, I wish I had some sort of sports almanac to quote to my younger self...
