Had a think but still not sure what you mean by this.


Hi Nick,

OK, Cul de sac's are terminations of a first person point of view. Unless we believe in disembodied minds then there is some kind of physical system with some kind of wave function that is associated with the 'body' of the observer. Here we are considering cats but that does not matter since it is the first person experience that is being investigated, be it of a cat, an ameoba or a human. So, if there is a cul de sac there there has to be some wave function aspect that encodes the 1p and the termanation of that wave function matters within the global scheme of the branching. Thus there is a 3p consequence.

Of course the wave function doesn't terminate, it just evolves into the wave function of an unconscious, and eventually decaying, brain.
