I have also been overwhelmed by the volume on this list. The idea is not
to take more than you can chew.

entropy state such as the Big Bang or having \$1 million after a QS your
entropy is going to increase. (There are many ways I could spend that
million). The number of possible states you can reach increases, hence

You say that the Born Rule would fail if measure *increases*. Here is a
counterexample:
Using your own argument I could say that the Born rule would fail if
measure *decreases *according to function f(t). For example it could be
norm^2 f(t) . So using your own argument since the Born rule is only
norm^2 therefore measure stays constant?
I do not understand why you say that the Born rule would fail.

Linking entropy with measure may bring some interesting insights. Let's
see how far we can go with this.
