No! If that "or" is the exclusive "or" then that would have been quite obviously a INCORRECT prediction. If you don't believe John Clark about this then just interview the parties after it's all over and see for yourself. The correct prediction would have been both W AND M.

You, Bruno and John, have spilled a lot of electrons arguing this. I see Bruno's thought experiment as merely illustrative of how Everett's relative state of conscious observation might be realized in world that is just a computation - a single computational state can be continuous with two different successor states; so if consciousness is computation then a single state of consciousness can be succeeded by two of more different states.

Is this controversial?
