Thank you Bruno & Jesse, this "anticipatory QTI" is the most awesome interpretation of QM I've ever heard.
It's not so much an interpretation of QM as "the many-worlds interpretation of QM + some assumptions about laws of consciousness, particularly laws governing first-person probabilities in duplications".
Is it too optimistic to think that we are being 'nudged' toward a biotech breakthrough which will give us legitimate/objective immortality?
Under this theory, it is possible that our first-person probability of seeing breakthroughs that will give us ways to extend our lives indefinitely (whether through biotech, nanotech, or uploading our consciousness into a computer) would be higher than the probability that would be observed by some aliens watching our planets from a distance, who had no personal stake in whether we make such breakthroughs or not.
