A few quotes below to dualism from Max Velmans.

H. Kragh ("Dirac: a Scientific Biography", Cambridge U.P., 1990) reports
a 1927 discussion between Dirac, Heisenberg and Born, about what
actually gives rise to the so called "collapse" (reduction of waves packet).
Dirac said that it is 'Nature' that makes the choice (of measurement

That is using Nature as a God of the gap.

Born agreed.  Heisenberg however maintained that, behind the collapse,
and the choice of which 'branch' the wavefunction would be followed, there
was "the free-will of the human observer".

That is using Free Will as a God of the gap.

Put in another way; they just say "don't ask".

Everett solved this, without realising that its solution has to be extended on arithmetic, and that the wave itself must be explained entirely by the relative number computation statistics, to be just coherent.
