Brent, thanks for this. If I've understood it at all, the idea is
that the "sum over histories" results in our witnessing the most
"probable" macroscopic outcome as our "present" observation. I
believe there is some controversy in interpreting how "probability"
should be understood in the context of a "block" multi-outcome
structure (which I'm assuming to be implicit here) in which every
outcome in some sense exists with equal "probability" - i.e.
certainty. Does this imply that, to recover the "subjective
probability" of my experiencing this moment "now", some further notion
of (random?) "selection" of observer moments from the block is needed?
A bit like an (infinite?) ensemble of measurements, the overall
results of which (i.e. "subjective time") would be expected to conform
to the inherent (i.e. "observed") distribution of outcomes in the
