MWI is a fully deterministic theory, but it is not the only deterministic theory consistent with QM.

I believe that 't Hooft's theory is more natural from the point of view that universes are programs. It is hard for me to understand how you get interference between ``nearby´´ universes or programs. According to 't Hooft QM would arise in a ``single universe´´ References: [1] Quantum Gravity as a Dissipative Deterministic System http://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/9903084 [2] Determinism in Free Bosons http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0104080 [3] How Does God Play Dice?
