As of now, I accept Copenhagen and wave function collapse by the observer.
There's a couple questions about many worlds that don't add up.
1. If there's no collapse how do we know this? How can we detect the wave aspect of reality if we are in a constant state of decoherence? The double
slit experiment shows us that a particle acts like a wave when it's not being measured. If we are in a constant state of decoherence or a constant
state of collapse, how can we detect the wave aspect of reality? When I'm mowing the lawn, there has to be a universe where I hit a rock, one where I
run out of gas and ....... I truly think many worlds is just a way to get around consciousnes as a fundamental property of reality. Like David Deutsch
said, he likes Parallel universes because it reduces the role of the observer and you couldn't define or measure an observer and it was too mystical.
I think other universes exists but they are in a state of potential until consciousness makes a measurement. This means consciousness has to be the
foundation of reality.
2. Decoherence doesn't say anything about choice. There's no evidence that decoherence is connected to choice. So just because I type this message
in one universe does not mean I type a different message in a parallel universe. There's no evidence that decoherence extends to the choice of an
observer. There's also not any evidence that every possible universe has to exist. All you can say with certainty at this point is that all possible
states have the potential to exist. These states exist in an undifferentiated state until a measurement occurs.
I think Parallel universes and the multiverse is a big fluke. It's pushed by atheist and materialist because they know without it their left with a
Deutsch is an atheist and he and others know if there's not a universe for every choice that can be made, that opens the door to the observer which
is too mystical to them but never seen parallel universes is acceptable.
