To below and many others on the list: Do we really assume the MWI or any setup of the (poorly identified) existence we dream up for the unlimited system of "universes galore" in our little 'material-inhibited' minds, as being totally 'constructed' according to OUR recent explanations of OUR poorly understood observations on THIS little muddy planet during the past split second of its churnings?
