Dark energy not as fine tuned as thought?

Hi all,
I've always wondered how the enormous 10 to the 120 power was calculated. That's like saying 10 to the million times a million times a million until you've said it 20 times! But new physics models seem to imply dark energy's impact on a given universe could be a lot less than previously thought.

But then there's this pearl of wisdom! "According to the research, if we live in a Multiverse, we’d expect to observe much more dark energy than we do – perhaps 50 times more than we see in our Universe." I'm sorry, as I have a humanities brain and never did physics, but why would any property in our universe indicate *anything* about any other possible universes, and even the possibility of their existence? This dark energy seems to be vastly more mysterious to me now than it was before this article!
