`What Jesse and Saibal write is the key, I think. While all successor states are possible,`

only very few are "experiencable and memorable by a coherent brain (computer) and mind

(software decision path in your brain).

`I think that the only factor that makes these "anything can happen/is happening" theories plausible`

at all is that all but a vanishingly small number or successor states are OVERWHELMINGLY

incoherent.

`The argument runs like this. To make everything come out so that everything seems consistent,`

and mutually consistent, for one or, in our case, a large group of, observers, the states and behaviours

of an inconceivably vast number of different particles/waves has to be just so, or the whole

shebang just falls apart. There are close to zero such large-scale coherent states (or state-succession

paths, if you will.) There may nearly be just one such coherent state-succession path.

`Another way of putting this is that the number and type of future-outcome-factors that don't matter`

to the ability of the whole pattern to remain coherent is relatively very, very small. Perhaps the different

ways in which a quantum state of some photon can come out into a classical state when observed

are amongst the factors that "don't matter" to the ability of our universe to continue coherent (i.e. observable)

but the probabilities of those different outcomes for the photon DO matter to the coherence of our

universe, and the very fact that the photon's quantum state does collapse into one classical state for us when

we observe it is a result of us being able to observe only a single path that is consistent with our and our universe's

continued overall coherence. A property of the coherent, observable path through the plenitude is that

quantum states MUST choose a single state, for observers inside that coherent observable state-evolution-path.
