I confess that my own view of these things causes me confusion as when I read the threads in this list the words ascribe different meanings to me. I have a my own view of it and my needs are that of 'calibration' with respect to the view of the MWI-involved physicist (from which I believe the factual picture will emerge in the end). Are there any non-jargon, non-categorised (a la Philosophy) cut-to-the-chase descriptions of these 3 things? Sorry to ask, but Googling it out of this universe has proven fruitless thus far, without reading Avogadros # of unrealted words and mathematics - no time. Thanks in advance. Colin.
