The subject of this group: to discuss the idea that all possible universes exist. Here "exist" is used in the absolute, unqualified sense. It's as if an object by itself is not enough, it needs a property of existence to be real. I'd like to deny meaning to this property. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
