Of course there are other explanations - you probably know them. But I
haven't bought them yet either. What they have in common is that some
things really happen and others don't - randomly. Bohmian QM is a good
example, although I won't buy it. Omnes' takes the view that QM is a
probabilitic theory, it predicts probablities and probability means some
things happen and some things don't. He has proposed a model for the
nulling of off diagonal terms of the density matrix. It's just hueristic,
but I have hopes that something like it might come out of einselection plus
the information theoretic approach (see quant-ph/0212084). It seems to me
than an information theoretic analysis should be able to place a lower bound
on how small a probability can be and not be zero.
