Predictions of a fundamental statistical picture

A picture is presented in which standard physics and its extensions are obtained from statistical
counting and stochastic fluctuations, together with the geography of our particular universe in D
dimensions. The inescapable predictions include supersymmetry, SO(d) grand unification, Higgs-
like bosons, vanishing of the usual cosmological constant, nonstandard behavior of scalar bosons,
and Lorentz violation at extremely high energies.
For a theory to be viable, it must be mathematically consistent, its premises must lead
to testable predictions, and these predictions must be consistent with experiment and ob-
servation. Here we will present a theory which appears to satisfy these requirements, but
which starts with an unfamiliar point of view: There are initially no laws, and instead all
possibilities are realized with equal probability. The observed laws of Nature are emergent
phenomena, which result from statistical counting and stochastic fluctuations, together with
the geography (i.e. specific features) of our particular universe in D dimensions.
