The crossover to leave all crossovers in the dust

Respect the power of creativity!Sometimes fanfic goes off the *really* deep end. Eliezer Yudkowsky's The Finale of the Ultimate Meta Mega Crossover is a great Vernor Vinge and Greg Egan fanfic.

As one of the commenters on lesswrong said:

"But yeah, that story was fun. As delightfully twisted as Fractran. (Yes, I am comparing a story to a model of computation. But, given the nature of the story, is this not perfectly reasonable? :))"

My favourite line is probably: "You had a copy of my entire home universe?"

Overall, the big question is of course where the Born probabilities come from. And people say fanfic is just mindless fun.
