So what you're saying is.......... uhhhmmmmmm ..........somewhere there is a universe where I'm a good putter?!?!?

I'd hate to try to imagine how screwed up the physical constants that constrain THAT universe are !!

My parallel universe counterpart is preventing me from commenting.

As advertised it’s hogwash. No matter how elegant the mathematics, the many-worlds ‘interpretation’ of quantum mechanics is utterly unnecessary. It’s all just an attempt to force the wierdness of quantum mechanics into a mentality formed by classical mechanics.

I’d have to read the paper, but it seems quite implausible that any interpretation of QM adds predictive capacity so as to be experimentally distinguishable from any other interpretation.

This is a pretty thin gruel to base such a broad claim on.

To paraphase Yoda: “Theoretical possibilities do not a reality (or multiple realities) prove.”

Eventally, the cat in the closed box will prove himself to be dead whether or not you take a measurement.

Generally, the least complicated explanation is most likely the correct one. An infinite number of multiple parallel universes is not a simple explanation.

But what do I know? I’m a history major...in this universe, that is... perhaps I’m channeling...

It’s pretty big Hubris to think that atoms (or smaller particles) aren’t really solid (in reality) untill they have observed them! And how would they ever know to test this- as soon as the particles were “observed” according to the mathmaticians they would stop being in flux as soon as they “observed” it!

We have to introduce these english wizards to P.T.Barnum : “My boy, there’s a SUCKER born every minute”. These types of hucksters are quickly dealt with at the high stakes poker tables in Vegas. They are usually called FOUR FLUSHERS, always trying some new kind of con. I believe they even have classes for dealers, operators on all the different scams that have been tried before, the criminal mind becomes very ingenious when a bundle of CASH is the objective. This PARALLEL UNIVERSES nonsense is but another scam.

This scam was started by Einstein, Rosen, Podalski(p?)many moons ago, known as the EPR paradox. Same old nonsense, deliberately confusing probabilities with actualities. It’s that old story of the Emperor’s New Clothes : a whole bunch of suckers and country bumpkins believe it : the Emperor’s cloths are so FINE as to be invisible...until someone in the crowd sees some IDIOT riding his horse in a parade, BUCK NAKED...and starts LAUGHING...

Clothed in your PARALLEL UNIVERSE apparel, struting down the street, do you want to be laughed at too?
