For "generic", try "of largest measure within the plenitude". Measure, basically, is the number of observers with a set. Thus if almost all observers were supermen within the plenitude, us being regular Joes would falsify the TOE. As to how to calculate the measure distribution, see the archive for some ideas, and tell us if you find a better solution. ===== - - - - - - - Jacques Mallah ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) Physicist / Many Worlder / Devil's Advocate "I know what no one else knows" - 'Runaway Train', Soul Asylum My URL: http://hammer.prohosting.com/~mathmind/ __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
