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

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
