This has never been rigorously proven.

Therefore the MWI is shown to be false. This is also not a correct conclusion (if you replace MWI by quantum immortality). > > > --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
