## Main Question or Discussion Point

Dmitry, what do you think about the following generalization of MWI?

Wave function of the universe depends on the initial condition. Even if one chooses a very simple initial condition, one can still ask - why this initial condition and not some other? So why not ALL initial conditions? Why advocates of MWI (with the exception of Tegmark) do not say that ALL wave functions (that satisfy appropriate equations of motion) are realized in parallel universes?
