OK. May be the measure (which is simple in QM, I agree) is
simple also in relativistic QM (I have some doubt, here, though).
You should also realise that the discussion, as far as I'm concerned,
doesn't take QM for granted. I'm trying to derive the QM-measure
from the hypothesis of computationalism in philosophy of mind.
Tell me if you accept the Many World Interpretation of QM.
In that case, if you don't accept splitting, I guess you disagree
with the Q.19 of Price's Everett FAQ
Worlds would never split but would differentiate, if there are
many worlds and non splitting.
Perhaps you don't believe in the MWI ?
