Hello everyone. My name's Youness Ayaita and currently I'm a graduate student of physics and mathematics at Heidelberg University, with special interests in the field of theoretical quantum physics and in the question how it comes to our specific laws of nature.
In the beginning of the year 2003 (I was as a sixteen-year-old) philosophical considerations led me to the idea that possibly everything exists. Independently from everything that was said or written by others working on the issue, I went on developing my theories and found different justifications for the everything- hypothesis (some of which are substantially different from the mathematicalist approach or the motivation by information theory). In particular, I was interested in the implications of the everything- hypothesis for physics, or to be more precise, for the expected structure of the world that we experience. I asked the question whether it is even possible (in principle) to mathematically deduce properties of the physical world from the everything-hypothesis (if the answer is yes, then this could provide some kind of experimental test of the everything-hypothesis, making it falsifiable in a vague-- though not exact--sense). In this context, I found several plausible arguments and I explored ideas how to capture mathematically the Everything. Until the end of the year 2005, I had no idea that other people were seriously working on the issue. But then, I read of David Lewis and bought his book "On the Plurality of Worlds". Later, in 2006, I was interested in the philosophy of quantum physics and became a supporter of the Everett interpretation. I read recent publications by Wallace, Saunders, Zurek, Zeh, Deutsch, Tegmark and others. Yesterday I found this list. I am still surprised and pleased that my old ideas are also developed and discussed by others than myself. Since my thought is only little influenced by the literature, I hope that I will be able to give some new perspectives in future discussions.
