I checked out your website, but it still seems to me there is a big gap
between saying all universes with physics that are consistent with the
WAP are experienced and saying that all thoughts (observer moments)
exists. In the later case there is no explanation for the seeming
existence of coherent sequences of thoughts such as 'me', except to say
that if all thoughts exist then this sequence must exist too. The
trouble with this is that an explanation that can explain anything
explains nothing.
