Chris, this is a scary story.... It points to the fact that there is a need for a MW ethics. I also independently discovered QT immortality several years ago.
Hal finney writes << I wonder if any suicides have ever been discovered where there was a note or other evidence that they were attempting quantum suicide? >> I know that Arthur Koestler the author of "The Roots of Coincidence" committed suicide. I quickly scanned his book to look for a hint of MW but could not find any. Everett too died at a young age... but I don't know the circumstances of his death. Even though I am not religious I found a way to eliminate QS from consideration. It is most beautifully stated in the psalm of David: ".... even though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil...." The MW is truly the valley of of the shadow of death: we die a billion deaths every nanoseconds, yet we can only be aware of surviving.... QS is only a drop in the bucket...There is no need to commit suicide..... I will fear no evil... The future, the only future that we can perceive is a good future and if things may appear to take a turn for the worse, it is only temporary, things will get better.... Enjoy life... it is like a dream...nothing can hurt you... it is also like a game.... It is most enjoyable if you play by the rules...."My cup runneth over, Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life..." Live to the full and enjoy for the future is assured.
