the same sense you mean in the UDA when referring to many-worlds thought
experiments, but he refuses to use it in that same sense when it comes
duplication in the UDA.
After a experiment has been completed the Many World's Interpretation can

The analogous experiment in the UDA is pressing the button and seeing what City you now

we've gone over this a dozen times already.)

Many Worlds is not the dominant explanation in the scientific community,

Many worlds requires that gravity be quantized, where the CI does not (according to
What gave you the idea CI allowed non-quantized gravity? It isn't a question of

So I would say MW is a theory and not an interpretation. Also, I know of no good
explanation of why quantum computers should work under single-universe interpretations.
Because they traverse all allowed Feynman paths.
Thirty one years ago, Dick Feynman told me about his 'sum over
histories' version of quantum mechanics. "The electron does anything it
likes', he said. "It goes in any direction at any speed, forward or
backward in time, however it likes, and then you add up all the
amplitudes and it gives you the wave-function."
I said to him, "You're crazy." But he wasn't.
