Obviously, there are worlds in the Multiverse that are not
observed. These clearly have a different ontological status to the
observed ones. As to whether these non-observed worlds exist or not is
probably a meaningless question - one can argue the toss either way
according to one's preference. It is equivalent to the old
philoshophical rubric about the tree falling in the forest...
