Multiversal musings[]

Hi there,

I'm not sure if this works as this is the first attempt at using this page, but I read through your proposal with interest.

First off, I'd like to quote 3 golden laws of attribution:

1. Arnold’s Law: everything that is discovered is named after someone else (including Arnold’s law)

2. Berry’s Law: sometimes, the sequence of antecedents seems endless. So, nothing is discovered for the first time.

3. Whiteheads’s Law: Everything of importance has been said before by someone who did not discover it.

The concept of a multiverse is not new, and I've certainly read from several sources concepts regarding the fractal basis for life the universe and beyond which is what I think your trying to tag as your own, all of which originate before 2005 (infact I think the earlest is in a book dating from 1992 sometime). In all fairness you've read a lot into it, but I don't believe that it's original to the extent your citing; merely expanding into a given field and adding a novel tag.

......etc, etc, etc....Try expanding the search criteria, flesh out the theory, could be really interesting.
