Certainly some do. Max Tegmark would be an example[1]. He posts a sort of "all possible universes with all possible laws". (I think "possible" in this context roughly means mathematically consistent.)


When I became interested in modern physics theories of both quantum and universe level, I found the following book [0] by Max Tegmark to have very good explanations regarding origin and nature of the universe, quantum mechanics, and just interesting stories / facts from the life of physicists.
