Bruno, Thank you for still working on my post. I am working on the reply, in particular designing the set of function or number that can be diagonalized to generate a large number. I shall be busy this weekend with family matters but I will reply to you in detail.
I agree that the idea of quantum suicide did not originate with Tegmark, even though he is the one who popularized it. The idea also came to me independently in the early 1990's as I was pondering the Scroedinger cat experiment. What if I was the cat? How would I feel? What if I was the scientist conducting the experiment and I was inside a larger box enclosing the whole experiment? Would I feel the superposition? These are very obvious questions to ask. This Scroedinger cat experiment approximately dates to the 1920-1930's (?) and it is very well possible that others have had the same thought.
