(1) There is a possible world in which maximal failureness is instantiated. (2) Necessarily, a being is maximally failing it only if it has maximal failureness in every world. (3) Necessarily, a being has maximal failureness in every world if it fails it (it is everything) to the greatest possible extent in every world. If it is possible that some being fails it (it is everything) to the greatest possible extent in some logically possible world, then it is necessarily true that this being exists in our world. Now the question is: which one of us is it?

uhhh... what if, unlike David Lewis, we don't believe in the actual existence of possible worlds? I can imagine it (or at least it seems to me i can) but that doesnt mean it exists. I think that also pretty drastically effects your P2. A being that maximally fails is one that does so in the ACTUAL world. -doug-
