I'm not of this opinion. I argue that the Everything and the Nothing
are essentially the same thing considered in different
ways. Nevertheless, it could be we're saying the same things using
different words. The term I use is mathematical duality.

I'm aware of your ideas, as you know. Unfortunately, I never found any
really good way of squaring them with the ideas in the rest of the
book. I don't believe your "logical flow" is at all related to my TIME
postulate, for example. But I'm open to suggestions - I don't want to
leave anyone out deliberately.

You are referring to the different worlds in the Multiverse here. This
question simply has no meaning. There is no "external time", or other
syncronising relationships between the worlds.
