Would you know the difference if you were in all other universes at
once? What about existing in every point of time that spans your
life, would you not still have the illusion of only existing in the

>From my understanding of Theory of Nothing, the set of all
descriptions for every possible universe requires zero bits of
information to describe when taken as a whole. However with observers
there is discrimination within this set of descriptions, observers
determine which are perceived as real and due to this discrimination
individual universes requiring massive amounts of information to
describe emerge from a set that takes nothing to describe. The large
amount of information required to describe what we observe is due to
fact that what is observed in any particular observer moment is
finite, therefore requiring some information to define its bounds.

I hope I have understood that part correctly; if not Russell can
correct me.
