Subject: ANNOUNCE: the "everything" mailing list

You are invited to join a mailing list for discussion of the idea that all possible universes exist. Some possible topics of discussion might include:

Here are some papers that can serve as a basis for the discussion: Because this mailing list attracts people from many different academic fields, and many posts have high technical content, it is suggested that after joining, you post a message to the mailing list with the subject "JOINING post". In this post, please give a brief biography of yourself and tell us your intellectual backgrounds. What fields are you familiar with, what relevant books/papers have you read, etc.? This way, if you don't understand someone's post, you can look up his JOINING post in the archive and figure out what background he is assuming.

Please use this link to subscribe or unsubscribe to the mailing list. An archive is available at http://groups.google.com/group/everything-list, with an alternative/backup archive at http://www.nabble.com/Everything-List-f18221.html. [Note: The Google archive seems to be missing some early posts. Use the Nabble archive for completeness.]
