No Deutsch does not agree with this, I know because I've talked to him about it. In the
many worlds interpretation neither choice nor consciousness nor mind in general have
anything to do with the way the laws of physics work, however in order to devise a
experiment that attempts to prove that Many Worlds makes better predictions than other
interpretations where mind is important it is obviously necessary to incorporate mind
into the experiment.
Which agrees with my point that the experiment is only designed to test the Wigner theory
that consciousness collapses the wave-function. Rejecting Wigner's interpretation (which
he dropped later anyway) is not the same as proving MWI.
