What if ALL branches terminate?
Note 1: this is perfectly compatible with an ensemble of branches
which does not terminate even though each individual branch does, if there
are infinitely many branches.
Note 2: this is really the situation in QM, if a 'branch' is
understood as an implementation of a brain computation. If you disagree I
must ask for a mathematically precise definition of branch.
Note 3: I have not been active recently because I have a lot of
work to do, and I will have for the next few weeks. To all Qiciders: Do
not interpret silence on my part as a lack of contempt for your writings.
Note 4: George, you still owe me an apology re: Bayesian Boxes.
